Chelsea and Serie A club set to seal £28.8m deal for a fast attacker

Chelsea football club have started this campaign very strongly just as the same way they finished the last season.

Fresh from lifting their second-ever UEFA Champions League trophy, the Blues defeated Villarreal on penalties to lift the Super Cup before recording two wins from their opening two Premier League fixtures – against London rivals Crystal Palace and Arsenal.

The west London club have built an extremely well-rounded squad in the last few transfer windows and have added a world-class striker to their ranks this summer in the form of club-record £97.5million signing Romelu Lukaku, who joined from Inter earlier this month.

Still, transfer chief Marina Granovskaia is not done there as she is reportedly targeting a centre-back and a centre-midfielder, with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Atletico Madrid’s Saul both thought to be targets for the two respective positions.

The reigning champions of Europe have also raised significant funds through sales in this transfer window, receiving £36m from Roma for English frontman Tammy Abraham whilst French defender Kurt Zouma is reportedly nearing a £25m move to West Ham United.

Now, it is talented winger Callum Hudson-Odoi that is being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge as Italian outlet Corriere della Sera, via Get Italian Football News, claim that Serie A outfit Atalanta are discussing a potential loan deal for the youngster.

The 20-year-old has struggled for consistent game time under Thomas Tuchel’s stewardship, often utilised as a late substitute and was even taken off last term after being brought on just minutes earlier. understands that the Blues may consider accepting a loan move for Hudson-Odoi but would prefer to keep him at Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Englishman, who is valued at £28.8m on Transfermarkt, started just 10 Premier League matches for the west London club last term, finding himself behind the likes of Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic in the pecking order.
