Liverpool in the battle for 20-year-old Premier League winger

The Merseyside giants are reportedly interested in a shock move but Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi. The German manager is an admirer of England international and is keeping a close eye on his situation as he struggles for game time under Thomas Tuchel.

Callum initially looked like the next big thing for the Blues when he rose up through their academy and got some first-team chances under previous managers Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard, but things haven’t really worked out as expected for him in more recent times.

Hudson-Odoi might now do well to move on from the Blues if he wants to play regularly, and Liverpool might well end up being a good move for him.

Jurgen Klopp might find more room for Callum in his squad, with the German coach surely in need of a bit more depth in the wide areas to take the pressure off Sadio Mane after Xherdan Shaqiri’s recent departure.

The Reds also notably launched Daniel Sturridge’s career when they signed him from the Blues, so it could also give Callum the chance to show what he can really do when he’s given more of a platform. Callum could have similar potential, so it will be interesting to see how this saga develops in the months ahead.
