But it is 14th placed Augsburg, also in the Bundesliga, who are looking to capture the 20-year-old on a permanent deal, with the Hammers valuing the youngster at £8m, according to Sky Sports.

Taylor-Crossdale has impressed for the Blues’ academy sides in recent years, earning the Under-18 Premier League top scorer award back in 2017.

The dynamic forward has been regarded as a future star by Chelsea officials, and the club reportedly made an initial attempt to keep the striker at Stamford Bridge.

However, it appears as if Taylor-Crossdale will make the move to the Bundesliga in the summer, and will hope to emulate the likes of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson’s progression next season.

Chelsea could well be left in an attacking predicament next season under Maurizio Sarri, especially if they decide against making Gonzalo Higuain’s loan move permanent over the summer.

Rhodes open to permanent Norwich move.
Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes is open to completing a permanent move to Norwich this summer. Rhodes spent the season on loan to Norwich, as the club clinched the Championship title – finishing the season on 94 points, five clear of Sheffield United and 11 clear of Leeds. According to The Pink’Un, Norwich want to make his loan move a permanent one and that Rhodes, himself, is keen to stay. The report also claims that Norwich had an option-to-buy in the loan arrangement, but are now hoping that they can snap him up for a reduced fee. Rhodes’ contract at Sheffield Wednesday expires at the end of next season and is reportedly on big wages.
