According to 90min, Newcastle United under Eddie Howe are interested in recruiting Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

This morning, 90min reported that Newcastle are “very interested” in 21-year-old Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi, an England international.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, a Premier League opponent of Newcastle United’s, is unlikely to be available during the summer transfer window.

Undoubtedly, Chelsea do have a strong attack and a competitive team. The previous winners of the UEFA Champions League and the Premier League now have a new owner.

We are aware that it can be challenging for academy graduates to get into the Chelsea first squad, but Hudson-Odoi has already made 72 Premier League appearances for the Blues.

The forward may believe that he can still have an impact at Stamford Bridge and become a regular starter for manager Thomas Tuchel.

In the Premier League for Chelsea last year, Hudson-Odoi made four substitute appearances in addition to the 11 starts.

The 21-year-old, who makes £120,000 a week (SalarySport), contributed two assists and one goal in those matches.
