Callum Hudson-Odoi is someone that Newcastle United have been linked with this summer, as it looks like the talented winger could be on his way out of Chelsea on loan, after his first-team chances seem slim at this point of time. And now, the Magpies have been handed a boost in their chase.
Newcastle United have had to deal with one transfer blow after another in recent months in their quest to improve in their forward areas and as a result, this will come as a major boost for them to say the least.
But at the same time, they will face stiff competition for the signature of Hudson-Odoi as clubs across England and Europe are believed to be interested in signing the Chelsea winger.
Newcastle United handed boost in chase to sign Hudson-Odoi on loan from Chelsea
Hudson-Odoi’s interest in a potential move to Newcastle United is a boost for the club for sure and in many ways, that is the first hurdle crossed. Now, it remains to be seen if they can pull off a move.
It is not hard to see why there is so much interest in Hudson-Odoi. He was considered as a generational talent while coming through the youth ranks.
He made sparkling breakthrough at the senior level as well, and was on the verge of nailing down a spot in Chelsea’s starting XI at 18 years of age. That is rare to say the least.
He would end up suffering a serious injury that season and unfortunately, has never looked like the same player since then and never ended up nailing down a starting spot. He is still 21 years of age though and has time on his side.
