Exit makes sense
In our view, it would make sense for Callum Hudson-Odoi to leave Chelsea in the summer transfer window, possibly on a loan deal.
If Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel cannot guarantee the winger regular playing time this season, then there would be no point in the Englishman staying at Stamford Bridge and simply warming the bench.
If Southampton are keen on the English youngster, then they surely have a plan to use him regularly, and that should encourage the Chelsea winger.
Hudson-Odoi made 11 starts and four substitute appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea last season.
The 21-year-old scored one goal and gave two assists in those matches.
The winger also scored one goal and provided two assists in five UEFA Champions League matches for the Blues last season.
