Chelsea to offer Hudson-Odoi Eden Hazard's no. 10 shirt

Chelsea to offer Hudson-Odoi Eden Hazard's no. 10 shirt Chelsea are reportedly set to make their next move to keep Callum Hudson-Odoi at the club by offering want-away forward Eden Hazard’s no. 10 shirt next season. Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are just a few suitors, with the latter almost signing him in January after he handed in a transfer request at Stamford Bridge. According to the Daily Mail, Hudson-Odoi will be offered the no. 10 shirt vacated by Eden Hazard after he inevitably joins Real Madrid, with fresh contract talks expected to take place later this month.

Callum James Hudson - Odoi (born 7 November 2000) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward or winger for Premier League club Chelsea and the England national team. Upon receiving his maiden call-up, Hudson - Odoi said he was "shocked" and described it as "a 10 Hazard .

Callum Hudson - Odoi 's future at Chelsea has come under further threat with Bayern Munich offering The Bundesliga leaders handed the former Manchester City youngster the number seven shirt that Hudson - Odoi looks ever more likely to be leaving Stamford Bridge but will Chelsea regret letting it

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi may be persuaded to stay at Chelsea upon the availability of the Eden Hazard’s number 10 shirt, with the winger being heavily linked with a move away to Real Madrid.

The 18-year-old has been linked with a transfer to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich since January, however, their interest may be slowly dissipating, according to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail also reports that Chelsea may use Hazard’s suspected transfer to persuade Hudson-Odoi to stay at Stamford Bridge.

With the Belgian on the brink of a Real Madrid move, the absence of a number 10 shirt could be a deciding factor that might keep Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea which they are looking to do with the possibility of their best player Spain-bound.

Bayern looking elsewhere as Hudson-Odoi deal becomes complicated Bayern Munich are looking elsewhere after talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi became complicated, according to the Mail. The Bavarian giants are now reportedly looking to sign Ajax star Hakim Ziyech, who has been a star man for the Dutch side in their run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Hudson - Odoi 's current deal expires at the end of next season, meaning that the Blues could lose him for a compensatory fee if he doesn't extend his deal at the club. With USA winger Christian Pulisic joining the club for a hefty £58m, it may be the case that Chelsea have already found a replacement

Still, it looks increasingly difficult for Chelsea to keep Hazard as he nears the end of his contract, with Diario Gol among the sources saying the One of the best young players in Europe at the moment, it’s criminal that Callum Hudson - Odoi hasn’t already been given more of a key role in Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Goal, cited by the Daily Mail, claim that the youngster’s acquisition of the number 10 shirt is key if he is to remain at Chelsea.

Manager Maurizio Sarri also has to think about the looming transfer ban that would prevent Chelsea from signing any players and if he were to lose both Hazard and Hudson-Odoi it would be difficult to find a replacement.

Although, Hudson-Odoi has not been able to enjoy first-team football towards the end of the season due to an injury to his Achilles injury, the minutes he has put in during this season have proved he is worthy of a starting place in the lineup.

In the Europa League, the Englishman has scored four goals and recorded two assists in the nine times he has featured; great figures for a player only 18-years-old.
