Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has claimed Callum Hudson-Odoi is already at the same level as Willian and Pedro.
It has been reported Bayern have already seen two bids for Hudson-Odoi rejected by the Blues, with his future up in the air as his contract expires at the end of next season, and despite the fact we have rejected all their bids, the Bundesliga giants are not giving up and they intend to offer Hudson-Odoi the number 10 shirt should he quit Stamford Bridge.
Sarri, however, believes it will be better for Hudson-Odoi to remain at Chelsea as he believes that the winger is operating close to the level of Willian and Pedro.
‘He is ready I think [to play in the bigger games],’ said Sarri on the Metro website.
‘Of course, we have very important players in the same position. I can play with only two wingers. But now he is ready.
‘Of course, some times he will be on the bench but the same as Willian and Pedro. I can start to consider him on the same level.’
Will Hudson-odoi now stay?
After Sarri came out and admitted that he believes that Odoi is now ready to play on a regular basis, there should be no need for the lad to pack his bags and make the mistake of leaving to sign for Bayern, even if they offer him the number ten shirt.
There is no guarantee that he would get much more game time than he already does here and if he truly wants to become a world class winger, then he will decide to stay and develop in the Premier League, the best League in world football.
If Sarri believes he is ready, then Odoi will surely get the game time that his talent deserves.
