Hudson-Odoi staying at Chelsea
Firstly, an update has emerged concering the future of Chelsea winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi. Hudson-Odoi would start off as a fairly popular figure under Thomas Tuchel, being handed a somewhat odd role at right-wing-back in a bak-five. However, Hudson-Odoi then began to feature less and less, with Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta taking his spot at the back. Callum also has a huge amount of quality competition when vying for a spot in the Blues’ front-three as well. So, given his lack of minutes at the back end of the season and previous links to Bayern Munich, some may have perhaps been expecting Hudson-Odoi to move on this summer. Now though, the Sun are reporting that Hudson-Odoi will be staying at Chelsea to fight for his future. They add that this will kill any chance of him moving to Bayern as part of a swap deal for Kingsley Coman.
