Chelsea's Pulisic chase should encourage Aston Villa to move for Hudson-Odoi
According to The Daily Mail, Chelsea are keen to seal a £60m deal for Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic in January.
But Pulisic’s arrival at Stamford Bridge has thrown Callum Hudson-Odoi’s future into doubt, The Daily Mail claims.
Hudson-Odoi is a talented young winger but game time in the Premier League has been limited for him so far.
The 18-year-old has played nine senior games but only two of those have come in the league and yet is to feature in the top flight since Maurizio Sarri took over.
The youngster still has time on his side and a January loan move could be a more preferable option than leaving permanently.
This is why Aston Villa must start enquiring about Hudson-Odoi’s availability ahead of the January transfer window.
With John Terry on the coaching staff and Tammy Abraham thriving on loan at Villa Park, Chelsea will trust their young players to develop their game at Aston Villa.
This could be a shrewd move for the England youth international, who could get game time in the Championship.
And for Aston Villa, they would be getting the short-term services of one of the country’s hottest young prospects.
Hudson-Odoi would add major attacking threat to Aston Villa’s options ahead of their promotion push.
