Deal done: Chelsea complete deal for Juventus’ target {Not Bakayoko/Rudiger}

Chelsea have ended all speculations linking teenage striker, Callum Hudson-Odoi to a move to either Benfica or Juventus, according to report from Daily Mail.

The 16-year-old striker, who shone like a million stars in the U17 European Championships as England reached the final only to lose to Spain on penalties.

Hudson Odoi is highly rated at the club and is being groomed for a loan spell in the next 18 months, same way Tammy Abraham marvelled at Bristol City on loan and securing a Premier League loan move.

Odoi was magnificient in the Euros, playing a key role for the youth team, and being monitored as a future full England international.

He played a massive role as Chelsea won the FA Youth Cup for the fourth time in fifth season, but initially had concerns about his development as the club is now known across Europe to groom players, send them on loan and then sell them for a tidy profit.

The likes of Nathan Ake, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku have all been sold in this manner but others like Victor Moses and Thibaut Courtois who are now in the first team picture.

The player has been reassured of his future by Chelsea chief, Michael Emenalo about his future. Chelsea have one of the best academy setups in Europe, meaning that he could stay at the club to develop and find opportunities when he is fully mature. Odoi is a classy finisher, known for his pace, dribbling and ability to link up with other players.
