Arsenal are reportedly the only club to make an offer for Cengiz Under despite the player being linked with a number of clubs.
- Age: 18
- Position: Left Winger
- Contract until: 2020
- Club: Chelsea
One of the latest wingers to be linked with a move to Arsenal is young Chelsea star Hudson-Odoi. A report from The S*n claims the Gunners have ‘expressed interest’ in the winger, who is reportedly stalling on a contract extension because he’s not getting enough first-team opportunities.
Chelsea are notoriously poor at integrating their talented youth products into their senior teams, and Hudson-Odoi is no exception to this. Arsenal fans have seen first hand how impressive the winger can be at his best, from his masterclass in last season’s FA Youth Cup final, to his strong performance against the Arsenal senior side in pre-season.
Nonetheless, since the Community Shield in August, he’s only played 475 minutes of senior football. 19-year-old Reiss Nelson has already played 539 minutes in the Bundesliga alone this season, by comparison. Clearly, Chelsea is not the place to be for Hudson-Odoi to take the next step.
At youth level, the winger has one goal and two assists in five Premier League 2 matches, including one against Arsenal. It certainly wouldn’t be surprising if the Gunners took advantage of the contract dispute and made a move for him.
