Lazio Lining up Chelsea Winger Hudson-Odoi as Alternative to Frankfurt’s Kostic

Lazio have lined up Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi as an alternative to Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic.

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.
