Liverpool fans react as Klopp reportedly eyes Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi
Liverpool have reportedly added Chelsea wide man Callum Hudson-Odoi to their shortlist as he struggles for game time – and Reds fans have responded.
The Reds are likely to be looking at reinforcements in the final third soon, with Xherdan Shaqiri moving to Lyon. Jurgen Klopp lacks cover.
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah will be jetting off to the African Cup of Nations after Christmas. Harvey Elliott is set for a delayed spell on the sidelines.
Takumi Minamino is out in the cold, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is probably preferred in midfielder. Curtis Jones can play out wide.
But the Reds certainly lack depth in the final third. That could be the reason why Klopp is reportedly looking at a move to lure Hudson-Odoi to Anfield.
The England international is desperately in need of game time. This season, he has managed just two appearances – one of which was the Super Cup.
Chelsea have too much competition and at 20, with 100 games under his belt, Hudson-Odoi needs regular football. Liverpool could offer that.
What are Liverpool fans saying about Hudson-Odoi?
Liverpool could really do with £43m-rated (Bild) Hudson-Odoi. It is a move that suits both the Merseyside outfit, and even more so, the player himself.
A January deal is certainly not off the cards. If Thomas Tuchel continues to overlook Hudson-Odoi, then he will be disillusioned by January.
However, Chelsea may block a move, given Liverpool are their title rivals. Liverpool fans, though, would love their club to sign Hudson-Odoi.
