Liverpool are expected to sign a forward this summer. Jürgen Klopp’s front three is short on quality in depth and that is something which needs remedying fast. According to The Guardian, reported Liverpool target Callum Hudson-Odoi could be on the move.
Liverpool target Callum Hudson-Odoi
20-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi has been attracting interest from throughout Europe for some years now.
Bild has previously reported that Bayern Munich hold a strong interest in the winger.
The same report claimed that Liverpool also want Callum Hudson-Odoi.
However, this was before he suffered a severe achilles injury. Up until that point he was expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2019 but instead he signed a new deal in February 2020.
Chelsea bid for Achraf Hakimi
Despite spending something close to £200m last summer Chelsea appear set to spend an extravagant amount again.
According to Sky Sports, the Blues have had a £56m bid for Achraf Hakimi rejected.
The report states that the West London side have matched PSG’s bid but Inter Milan are holding out for £68m for the versatile Moroccan.
Hudson-Odoi could go
The Guardian has claimed that reported Liverpool target Callum Hudson-Odoi could face the chop if Hakimi arrives.
The youngster has been deployed as a right wing-back under Tuchel. His already limited appearances would be further restricted should the Blues bring in Hakimi.
Liverpool should jump at the chance to sign Hudson-Odoi if he becomes available.
He has buckets of potential and his value will increase over time, meaning he fits the FSG profile.
It wouldn’t be the first time we took someone from the Chelsea scrap heap and made him a star, just look at Daniel Sturridge and Mo Salah.
