Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi made his England debut in last Friday’s 5-0 win over the Czech Republic at Wembley and played the full 90 minutes in the 5-1 win away at Montenegro on Monday evening.

The 18-year-old has been hailed for his ability to play in several positions across the frontline by former Arsenal player Adrian Clarke and has been urged to add more goals to his game.

Hudson-Odoi is yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea but attracted strong interest from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in January.

“Well if Bayern Munich are in for you, I think you’re all that,” Clarke said, according to Daily Express.

“That’s fair to say, he’s a real talent.

“What he’s got is exceptional pace, he’s a natural winger that can go both ways actually.

“He can play on the left, he can play on the right.

“So when he’s in one on one situations he’s incredibly tricky to defend against, and he delivers good quality from wide areas.

“What he also did for the England junior teams at major tournaments is that he played off of the main striker as well.

“So basically in essence he can play left wing, right wing, in-behind the front man.

“And when he does so he’s direct, he’s positive, he’s skilful.

“He probably lack a few goals but that might come as the years go by.

“But he’s a talent that I think has the potential to certainly be the equal of Jadon Sancho, and we all know how good he is.”

Meanwhile, Andreas Christensen has hinted Chelsea won’t let any player leave the club this summer due to the transfer ban placed on the club by FIFA. Eden Hazard has been linked with a summer move to Real Madrid while Bayern Munich will attempt to sign Hudson-Odoi in the summer after failing in January.

“The situation I have ended up in has been very difficult to accept,” Christensen, who has seen his playing time limited this season under Maurizio Sarri, told Danish publication Ekstra Bladet.

“The messages we have received are that Chelsea cannot appeal the case and therefore want to keep all the players.”
