Chelsea ready to part with Callum Hudson-Odoi after omission vs Everton

The young winger could be on the move before the summer is out


Premier League giants Chelsea are open to the prospect of allowing Callum Hudson-Odoi to move on over the weeks ahead, according to reports.

The name of attacker Hudson-Odoi came back to the fore across the media earlier today.

This came after the 21-year-old was joined by transfer-linked pair Timo Werner and Marcos Alonso in being omitted from Thomas Tuchel’s matchday squad, as Chelsea kicked their season into gear in a Premier League meeting with Everton.

Chatter surrounding Hudson-Odoi’s future, in turn, has inevitably kicked back into full swing, amid suggestions that boss Tuchel simply doesn’t view the Blues youth product as a player capable of producing for his side on a week-to-week basis.

And, as alluded to above, if the latest word stemming from the media is anything to go by, then such uncertainty could yet give rise to a summer exit from Stamford Bridge for CHO.

As per transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the once so highly-regarded winger ‘could leave Chelsea’, in pursuit of regular game time.

Two Premier League rivals, meanwhile, are already expressing a keen interest in Hudson-Odoi’s signature, in the form of Southampton and Leicester City.

It is now up to the player himself to decide on his next destination, with any potential move expected to come in the form of a year-long loan.
