Sarri told massive Eriksen price as Former Gunner announces Everyone wants Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea
Paul Mariner has told Chelsea that Callum Hudson-Odoi will not be joining Barcelona in the summer, and he needs to stay wit the club.
Hudson-Odoi has become a firm fans favourite and has impressed on every occasion that he has stepped onto the pitch, his performances in the Europa League even earned him a call-up to the England National side, with boss Gareth Southgate believing he has a big future in the game.
However, speculation is rife about where he will end up during the summer window, with a number of top clubs all circling to try and prse him away from Stamford Bridge with the premise of regular football.
But Mariner has claimed that he needs to stay, and will not be leaving for the likes of Barcelona this coming summer.
“Hudson-Odoi, every single Chelsea fan wants him to stay at Chelsea,” said Mariner on the Daily Express website
“Sarri’s been reluctant to play him, I don’t know why, I really don’t. Sometimes he plays Pedro, okay [Eden] Hazard’s got to play, and [Gonzalo] Higuain is playing through the middle, or [Olivier] Giroud.
“But on that right-hand side, get him in. He either scores or he assists. Dynamic player, but he isn’t going to Barcelona.
“He can’t be because of the block on the transfers at Chelsea at the moment. He’s got to stay, they’ve got no players.”
Meanwhile, Tottenham have told the likes of Barcelona and Chelsea that they want close to £130 million for midfielder Christian Eriksen this coming summer window.
Eriksen has become a vital part of Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the past few seasons and is one of the creative reasons why they score so many goals throughout the course of the season, but there has been speculation that he could leave the club.
It is believed that the Danish star has refused three contract offers from Spurs over the past few months, with the latest reportedly close to the £110,000-a-week mark, Maurizio Sarri reportedly keen on the midfielders abilities.
Now the TMW website has claimed Spurs will be open to doing a summer transfer deal if clubs interested meet the £130 million valuation of the midfielder, as they seek to raise funds for their own possible transfer targets.
