Speculations over the future of Eden Hazard have refused to go away but in Callum Hudson-Odoi, Chelsea may have signed the new Belgian, that’s the claim of football pundit Pundit Tony Cascarino.
Hudson-Odoi is currently one of the brightest football prospects in the Premier League but he has found it difficult to get into the first team of Chelsea.’
Chelsea have received up to three bids for the player from Bayern Munich and reports have indicated that he want to leave the Premier league this winter.
He is yet to start a game for Chelsea in the League this season but he put up an impressive display against Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup, where he showed top quality – he scored a goal in the game and helped Chelsea to win the game.
Cascarino compared the player’s style with Hazard’s:
He told The Times: “Callum Hudson-Odoi is going to be a star, whichever club he moves to.
“He is similar to Eden Hazard in the way that he can beat players from a standing start, with his explosive pace and a quick movement of his feet to send a defender the wrong way.”
Sarri revealed that he wants to keep the player at Chelsea but the imminent arrival of Christian Pulisic may just mean he will not get regular game time.
