Crystal Palace target will not be going on pre-season tour with Chelsea

It looks like Hudson-Odoi’s career at Chelsea, through which he came from the academy, will come to an end this summer.

With them not bringing him on their pre-season tour and also apparently allowing him to leave permanently, it looks like the perfect time for Palace to act.

The versatile winger would be a great option for the Eagles to have. This is emphasised more by the fact that Wilfried Zaha is now currently a free agent and Michael Olise will reportedly miss the start of the season due to injury.

The ‘top-quality‘ winger is an exciting player and has won the Champions League with Chelsea. He is still only 22 years-old and has great potential.

It would no doubt be a very exciting transfer for the Eagles should they manage to beat the other interested sides to his signature.

Hudson-Odoi really fits the profile of transfers Palace try to make now. Young, but still a top player who has bags of potential to get even better.
