Carney Chukwuemeka thinks Chelsea could have a future star on their hands with Omari Hutchinson.

Chukwuemeka, who’s only 19 himself, is one of so many talented young players on the books at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder has played 11 first-team games during his debut season with the Blues, but there are plenty of other youngsters waiting to impress in the senior side.

Hutchinson joined from Arsenal last summer and is a very exciting attacker.

The 19-year-old has played most of his games so far this season as part of the successful Under-21s side, but he’s made two first-team appearances in Chelsea colours.

He’s a left-footed wide player who loves to dribble and create chances in the final third.

When asked who is going to be a future star at Chelsea, Chukwuemeka told the club’s YouTube account: “Omari Hutchinson. His fearlessness and his dribbling.”

Hopefully, the duo can both have big futures together in Graham Potter’s side.

It’s clear that one of the main strategies under this ownership is to invest in some of the best young players in the world.

We can’t wait to see how these investments look a few years down the line.

Hutchinson has been on fire for Chelsea’s Under-21s side this season, scoring eight goals and making 10 assists in 22 matches.

Unfortunately, the route into the Blues senior squad is extremely tough right now.

Once the squad is cut to a more manageable size this summer, we think there should be a lot more room for academy stars to get a chance at Stamford Bridge.

Hutchinson was linked with a loan move in the New Year, with a switch to West Brom failing in the closing stages of the January window.

Chelsea need to weigh up whether Hutchinson would benefit most from a loan deal next season.
