Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi’s rapid development suggests he is now good enough to replace Sadio Mane at Liverpool.
The Senegal winger is reportedly a target for Real Madrid this summer following Zinedine Zidane’s return as head coach (El Chiringuito TV last month).
The 20-goal forward has wowed this season, and could find himself being fought for this summer by the Spanish giants.
Madrid are said to be eyeing a rebuild this summer after a disappointing season that will culminate in no trophies.
Liverpool have recently been linked with a move for England international Hudson-Odoi (SportBild last month), who is genuinely already talented enough to take over Mane’s mantle should he depart.
It would appear Maurizio Sarri has finally seen the light with Hudson-Odoi.
England manager Gareth Southgate handed him his England debut during the last international break, and the Italian then gave him his first Premier League start against Brighton. He also started on Monday against West Ham United.
Every time the starlet takes to the field he looks as though he’s going to cause problems for the opposition.
Mane is one of the best wingers in Europe, so replacing him if he left would be tricky. But Hudson-Odoi has the potential to reach the same level.
One thing is for certain, the 18-year-old is definitely good enough to be starting regularly for a top side, as Bayern Munich clearly believe having made multiple January bids for the player (The Daily Mail). Liverpool should make sure it’s them if the need is there.
