In an Instagram interview with Michael Dapaah, Hudson-Odoi admitted he would be thrilled to link up with his friend at club level.

‘We make sure that we’re both doing well, obviously he’s doing amazing and having a great season. 

‘We’re always making sure each other is good. Obviously he’s a great player, I love playing with him – he’s a great player to play with.

‘For England as well we’ve played all the way through the ages so the link up has always been there.

‘I played against him sometimes in the Youth Cup games or we would play (with) each other for England, the link up has always been there and we’ve always loved playing with each other. 

‘The way we play with each other we just know where each other is on the pitch every time and we just love to play with each other.

‘I don’t know [if he’ll come]. Of course I would love it if he came to Chelsea. 

‘We’ve had a great partnership throughout, the way we play with each other is amazing. If he came the link up will still be there.’

Sancho has 17 goals and 19 assists in 35 games across all competitions this season.

Hudson-Odoi has 25 games in the 2019-2020 campaign despite suffering from hamstring injuries after recovering from a ruptured achilles tendon. 

And the youngster admitted he felt scared to go back onto the pitch afterwards.

‘It’s been hard for me, it was the first proper injury I’ve had so it was hard for me to deal with it at the time. 

‘When I first came back on the pitch I was scared because of everything that had happened and I thought, “How am I gonna run again and how is it gonna be?”. So for me it was a bit scary.

‘As time went on I was feeling more and more confident on the ball and getting back into my rhythm. It plays on my mind sometimes even now, if I get kicked on it [the achilles] or if something happens to it. ‘ 

But Chelsea winger is keeping himself fit while football remains suspended during the coronavirus crisis.

The 19-year-old was the first Premier League player to be diagnosed with Covid-19 but has now fully recovered and took part in the NHS #ClapForCarers when the clock hit 8pm.

‘Everybody is appreciating what you’re doing, all the hard work that you’re putting in to save lives, so thank you so much’ the winger said when asked to give a message to NHS staff.

He was also asked to pick his ultimate five-a-side team past and present and included two former Chelsea players in Petr Cech and Eden Hazard. Virgil van Dijk, Ronaldinho and the Brazilian Ronaldo were the other three to make his team.
