Whether Hudson-Odoi does have a breakout season this year, and it looks increasingly likely he will given Willian's seemingly imminent departure, it is clear that he won't be following the familiar well-trodden path of the typical promising Chelsea youngster.
And according to Goal.com, it was the Blues' assistant coach Gianfranco Zola who pushed for the 17-year-old's inclusion in the preseason squad.

Belgium goalkeeper Courtois, 26, has been linked with Real Madrid this summer. Antonio Conte was exasperated and eventually worn down by the feeling of strategic powerlessness; how his successor deals with it could be the difference between success and failure at Stamford Bridge.

But Sarri was not about to pile on, adamant he is not anxious about the Spain global.
He will be battling with the likes of Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazard for a spot as one of the attackers behind the main striker.
