Every big club in Europe is eyeing Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi situation with interest right now.
The 18-year-old’s contract expires at the end of next season, and he’s so far rejected all their extension offers – even handing in a transfer request in January in an attempt to force a move to Bayern Munich.
Liverpool have been credited with an interest in the teenager via SportBild – and it’s no surprise the player is on our radar considering his exceptional talent.
Chelsea though are desperate to keep hold of Hudson-Odoi – and according to the Evening Standard – have just put a new offer on the table, worth £100k/week.
Considering he’s never started a game in the Premier League, the figures are astronomical – but probably fair when you realise the player he could become.
Hudson-Odoi shone for England during the recent international matches, boosting his reputation in the process.
If he doesn’t pen terms by mid-summer, Chelsea will have to decide whether it’s smart to cash in then or wait to lose him on a Bosman.
Because he’s under the age of 23, Chelsea will receive a tribunal fee, but it’ll be nowhere near his true value, especially in this current market.
We’d love Liverpool to buy Hudson-Odoi, but reckon it’s basically impossible that the Blues will do business with a rival. If worse comes to worse, he’ll be offloaded to Germany.
