Leeds United should target ambitious loan move for Callum Hudson-Odoi

Callum Hudson-Odoi is considered one of the best talents to come through at Chelsea during recent years. The 17-year-old played twice in the Premier League last season, but he hasn’t been given many opportunities under Maurizio Sarri.

There could be potential for a Championship club to take him on loan in January. A number of teams would be interested, but Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United could be the perfect club for him.

The respect that Bielsa holds in the game means that top clubs will be willing to send talented young players to Elland Road. Sarri looks to play an attacking style at Chelsea and Hudson-Odoi would be given a chance to operate a similar role at Leeds.

Mason Mount has shown the benefits of dropping down to the Championship, as he is getting regular minutes and earned an England call-up.

 

It is unlikely that Hudson-Odoi will get many chances on the left-wing at Chelsea considering the form of Eden Hazard. A loan move could suit all parties.

For Leeds, they will need to inject some fresh legs into their squad to maintain a promotion challenge due to the intensity of Bielsa’s style of play. Hudson-Odoi would provide that and be an exciting addition.
