England and Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi will get a chance to get more game time elsewhere in January, says outlet Calcio Mercato.
The 19-year-old is gradually fading out in Sarri’s plans and a move in January has been tipped to happen.
Topping the rumour pile is that the England international will be allowed to depart the club on a season-long loan deal to keep his flames burning.
Hudson-Odoi managed to clasp a spot in Sarri’s team-sheet after a healthy run in the World Cup for England. The Italian named the youngster in their 2-0 defeat to table toppers Manchester City in August, in the Community Shield.
Hudson-Odoi lasted until the hour mark of the game before he was replaced.
Since getting a shot at starting for the first team in August, the Wandsworth native hasn’t bagged a chance.
Sarri’s introduction has swelled fierce rivalry in Stamford Bridge, creating some sort of healthy competition between players, making it difficult for Hudson-Odoi to break ranks.
Hudson-Odoi has received four call ups for England U19 side, and in those occasions racked up two goals for himself.
Hudson-Odoi could be shipped to Europe where a large part of the west Londoners’ youngsters are nursing their talents.
