According to England U21 manager Aidy Boothroyd, the 18-year-old could play in any team in the world he wants.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has surprised the world with the way he has played with Chelsea.

He was called to the England national team senior squad and could get his debut in the European Qualifiers against the Czech Republic or Montenegro.

“He’s a very confident young man. He is very talented, quick, direct and clever,” England U21 boss Aidy Boothroyd told Sky Sports.

“I have been very impressed with him whenever I have seen him, whether it be coming on as a sub or starting a game.”

“Wherever he goes, he is good enough in my opinion from what I have seen potentially to be a regular at whatever team he plays at,” he added.

“Our aim is to get as many of our players playing in the Premier League as we can. As it’s happened, foreign clubs have tried to take the best English talent produced by English coaches.”

Hudson-Odoi set to undergo Surgery

Chelsea FC have confirmed that Callum Hudson-Odoi is expected to undergo surgery after rupturing the Achilles tendon against Burnley. Hudson-Odoi, 18, finally made the breakthrough...

The English forward started his professional career with Chelsea in 2017, after spending ten years in the team’s youth system.

“We have got to the situation now where players have got the opportunity to go and play abroad or stick at their clubs and battle it out. Generally the bigger the club, the more difficult it is to break in,” he continued.

“We can see that the talent and quality are absolutely there and there is, even more, coming up behind this group.”

“It is a good time for English football but they need that examination at the end of the week so you can understand why they start thinking about different options. They want to play football and that should be applauded,” Boothroyd concluded.
