As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti are working on providing new coach Maurizio Sarri with a winger suitable to his 4-3-3 formation, and have already identified the 28-year-old Kostic as one of their top options.
However, considering that he would occupy a non-EU slot in the squad, the Biancocelesti have underlined the 20-year-old Hudson-Odoi as a strong alternative.
Chelsea would be willing to send the 20-year-old Englishman away on loan, making a deal much more accessible for the Biancocelesti.
Developments are expected over the coming weeks, with less than a month remaining in the transfer window.
Hudson-Odoi, who is contracted to Chelsea until 2024, made 23 Premier League appearances last season, for a total of 1054 minutes. In that time, he scored two goals and provided three assists.
