Name: Callum Hudson-Odoi
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Chelsea)
Current National Level: England International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Last season, unless you followed youth football or are a Chelsea fan, it was unlikely that you had heard of Hudson-Odoi until Bayern Munich came in with a “surpise” bid for the youngster. Honestly, it was not a huge surprise, Callum has been hailed (along with Greenwood, Foden and Sancho) as one of the stars of the English generation. He was just unfortunate to have a player like Eden Hazard ahead of him in the pecking order. Subsequently, the bid from Munich instantly saw him thrust into the limelight, and even given more game time, a long with a genuinely surprising couple of England call-ups..
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – This is HIS season. With Hazard out of the picture, and a transfer ban for the club, Hudson-Odoi has to be one of the first names on the teamsheet. His potential seems unrivalled by most youngsters (apart from those named above) and Chelsea could have a new look young, fresh faced side that would be very interesting to follow this season.
