Report: 'Major clubs' make inquiry for 21-year-old Chelsea player

Report: 'Major clubs' make inquiry for Chelsea player Tuchel called 'outstanding' last season

Several unnamed clubs have reportedly made an inquiry for Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.

According to The Athletic, some “major clubs” from the Premier League and abroad have contacted Chelsea with inquires for the 21-year-old player.

With the Blues linked to signing some new attackers in this summer transfer window, many supporters at Stamford Bridge are speculating about what might happen with Hudson-Odoi.

The quick winger went through an injury-hit season last year, finishing with three goals and six assists in 28 games across all competitions.

It’s going to be interesting to see how Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel views his role moving forward. Incidentally, Tuchel did actually describe him as “outstanding” during last season.

Clubs have made inquiry for Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea should definitely take note that some big clubs are sniffing around Hudson-Odoi, who’s been tipped for the top level since a first-team breakthrough many years ago.

He’s a Blues academy graduate that’s now actually made 126 senior appearances for his boyhood club. The winger has earned three senior England caps, too.

The main issue around the speedster is that he’s yet to find any kind of consistency when it comes to delivering goals and assists, which is something modern day wingers are really scrutinised on. It’s vital to remember just how young he still is, though.

The fact Chelsea don’t often play with conventional wingers is something that goes against him because he’s either dropping into central pockets or filling in at wing-back.

If reported Blues target Raheem Sterling joins, you’d guess Tuchel may lean towards a system that suits Hudson-Odoi more.
