Ex-Gunner discusses possible Hudson Odoi to Arsenal transfer

Calum Hudson Odoi has been linked with a move to Arsenal in this transfer window, but the attacker looks set to leave England because of a lack of playing time at Chelsea.

The Englishman has been one of the finest young talents to emerge from the Chelsea academy in recent seasons, but injuries and a lack of trust from his managers has limited his game time since he broke into their first team.

Arsenal is arguably the best club for young talents because Mikel Arteta trusts them with playing minutes.

However, former Arsenal man, Kevin Campbell, believes Hudson Odoi will struggle to play regularly for Arsenal, as it is the case at Chelsea now.

He told Football Insider:

“This is the top part of football. If he want to play he is not going to play a lot at Arsenal either. That’s the thing. It is a difficult one.

“He would be part of the squad and he would get game time but he would not be a starter. If he wants to be starting regularly, Arsenal isn’t the place.

“I like him as a player. He has incredible ability and can play on the left and right side. I cannot see it happening though, if I’m honest.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Any player that cannot get into the current Chelsea team will similarly struggle at Arsenal.

We are no longer a team of mediocre players because Mikel Arteta has now signed world-class players for his group in the last few transfer windows.

  1. No serious minded Gooner believes for a moment that we are REALLY interested in Hudson Odoi. Its just anothe kite flying exercise, like so many false rumours that start from someones imagination and their hope that if you throw enough rumours at a fan site, then eventually ONE may just happen.
    Personally, I have always thought obviously false rumours make JA distinctly downmarket, but I ALSO KNOW THEY WILL CONTINUE.

  2. Whether the rumour is true or false, nobody knows for sure. But I disagree with Campbell that Hudson Odoi wouldnt be too useful to Arsenal. He is a technically gifted player but due to injuries and bad luck he has fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea and the current manager at Chelsea doesnt trust youth much so Hudson Odoi isnt getting enough opportunities to prove himself. His versatility to play either RW or LW would make him useful at Arsenal if Arteta and Edu decide to sign him and also he is PL proven.
