Arsenal plot move for Hudson-Odoi

Fresh reports now indicate that Arsenal are plotting a fresh raid on Chelsea to sign Hudson-Odoi.

The Mirror reports that the Blues are set for a massive summer clear-out that will see several players shipped out.

The 2021 Champions League winners are expected to trim their squad significantly to comply with Financial Fair Play rules after their spending spree that took their expenditure in the north of £300million on transfers in January.

Arsenal is said to be keen to take advantage of that development in their bid to land Hudson-Odoi.

The England international is currently on loan with Bayern Leverkusen for the remainder of the ongoing season.

According to The Guardian, the 22-year-old winger will be available for sale in the summer once his loan spell with Leverkusen expires.
