Callum Hudson-Odoi continued to cement his reputation as one of Chelsea‘s most promising up-and-coming stars tonight by scoring in the Europa League – and it’s left Blues fans demanding his future is sorted out.
The tricky 18-year-old winger has been on the radar of supporters ever since starring in the club’s pre-season tour of Australia, and he’s been rewarded with three starts in cup competitions this season.
In tonight’s penultimate group stage clash with PAOK at Stamford Bridge, boss Maurizio Sarri rewarded him with his fourth, and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands by scoring his first senior goal for the club:
Chelsea fans have been calling for Callum Hudson-Odoi in the team…

Earlier this week, Hudson-Odoi was linked with a shock move to Bayern Munich, as the Chelsea hierarchy stutter over giving him a new deal, and it’s left a lot of fans pretty frustrated after tonight’s display:
Hudson-Odoi needs to sign that new contract ASAP. Needs to back up Hazard

And the cunt is coming on..I fucking hate Willian..Hudson odoi is the present and the future..Give him more chances Sarri .

If Sarri doesn’t get the picture that Hudson-Odoi is the answer to thr Willian problem after his performance today then I’ve officially run out of paint 😭😭

Callum Hudson-Odoi has looked sharp so far and the goal will mean so much to him. Don’t want him to leave on loan but if he stays I can’t see him playing much. I’d start him over Willian right now…

You can't have a situation where Hudson-Odoi AND Hazard don't sign contract extensions.

Finally Hudson Odoi!!
Just hope it's not too late and he can sign the contract or has he made his mind up on leaving https://t.co/xpCS0AWQjF

Do you think Hudson-Odoi is a genuine elite star of the future?
