Chelsea’s Hudson-Odoi on Lazio’s List of Summer Targets

Maurizio Sarri has identified Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi as a good fit for his Lazio squad this summer.

The 22-year-old English winger was sent to Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen on loan last summer but struggled to show his best in Germany, scoring just one goal and providing one assist in 21 appearances across all competitions.

Once a highly rated prospect, Hudson-Odoi’s stocks have dropped in recent years, but Sarri remembers the player well from their time together at Chelsea in the 2017-18 campaign.

As reported by Radiosei (via LazioNews24), Bayer Leverkusen have decided not to sign Hudson-Odoi, so he’ll return to Chelsea later this month. The Englishman’s contract expires with the Premier League side in 2024, forcing them to look for possible buyers.

Valued at around €12-15 million, Sarri would like Lazio to pick up the 22-year-old, believing he’d be able to relaunch the player’s career in the Italian capital after a difficult few years.
