Chelsea’s asking price for youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has been revealed in the French press, and it’s incredibly high for a player of his tender age.

Hudson-Odoi was a level above his counterparts while coming up through Chelsea’s youth system. His electric pace and deadly finishing will have left defenders scarred for life. Comparisons to French superstar Kylian Mbappe are only narrowly wide of the mark.

With AS Monaco losing Mbappe to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, they appear keen to replace him with a player with similar attributes. Hudson-Odoi is one, and former Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo is thought to be considering raiding his ex-employers.

According to RMC, AS Monaco are interested in signing Hudson-Odoi. However, Chelsea’s asking price stands in the region of €20M, which is insane for a player who was born this millennium.

Hudson-Odoi is one of the most talented players we’ve ever produced. Without any bumps in the road in his development, he will be first-team quality one day. Chelsea should not consider selling him for any price.
