Lazio Take Interest in Out-of-Favor Chelsea Attacker

Lazio are set to spread the Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s windfall on multiple purchases and have added Callum Hudson-Odoi to their list of targets for the right wing. Despite the chatter, they haven’t started negotiating with Sassuolo for Domenico Berardi, Alfredo Pedullà reports.

The candidacy of Riccardo Orsolini is losing steam. Instead, Matteo Politano’s stocks are stable. The Biancocelesti have been offered foreign players but aren’t keen on them.

Hudson-Odoi doesn’t have Serie A experience, but he’s familiar with Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri. The two spent time together at Chelsea. The winger, who was very raw at the time, appeared 24 times and logged 5 goals and 5 assists. He fared well especially in Europa League.

The 22-year-old didn’t capture a prominent role in the ensuing seasons. He was loaned out to Bayer Leverkusen in 2022/2023 but failed to impress.

Our Take on Lazio and Hudson-Odoi

The Biancocelesti will get an unexpectedly large income for the departure of their ace and have to invest it wisely. The Englishman hasn’t been great lately, but he’s worthy gamble at the right price.

It’s always more advisable to spend for youngsters than veterans, even though their immediate impact wouldn’t be as big. On the other hand, while Chelsea have been trimming their roster, the price tags have been market-value and not cheap.
