The time is right for Callum Hudson-Odoi to move on from Chelsea and find a new club, for one season only at least.
I have total faith in the player and that he will become the world beater that we have all expected him to become. But to do this, he needs to play regular football in his preferred left attack position, and the only manager to really do that with him at Chelsea, was Maurizio Sarri.
Frank Lampard didn’t really put full trust in him, and although Thomas Tuchel has selected him a fair amount, he hasn’t often been selected as a left winger. Hudson-Odoi just wants to play now but play in the position he knows he is best in, and that is completely fair enough.
Bayer Leverkusen will be a great loan move for him and I think the Bundesliga provides a great pressure-free place and a good league for him to shine in, and I truly think that he will.
Bayer Leverkusen are closing on Callum Hudson-Odoi deal. Negotiations set to be completed with Chelsea on loan, after CHO turned down two loan proposals from Premier League. 🔴 #BayerLeverkusen

I hope that he goes on this season-long loan to Germany and he comes back to Chelsea next summer as the player we have all been waiting for him to become, and then he continues to smash it at Chelsea, his boyhood club that he is clearly determined to make it at.
Let’s see if this move goes through, but I genuinely think it will be an excellent move and the perfect time to go on this move for all involved.
