Maurizio Sarri is hoping to bring Callum Hudson-Odoi to Lazio on loan in the January transfer window, having worked with the young forward during his time as Chelsea manager.

Spanish publication Marca report that the Italian is targeting the 21-year-old in a six-month loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season.

The England international has been used by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel this season, but has struggled to hold down a regular place in the first team.

Hudson-Odoi has started eight Premier League matches, with two more substitute appearances, scoring just one league goal.

He has been playing regularly in the Champions League, though, appearing in five of Chelsea’s six group stage matches, starting three of them.

Chelsea have a really deep squad and are not short of options on the wing, where Hudson-Odoi is most comfortable, but with a busy rest of the season ahead they are unlikely to want to loan him out.

Tuchel’s side remain in the races for the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and EFL Cup, with six games scheduled in January thanks to the two legs of the EFL Cup semi-finals against Tottenham.

The German has also praised the winger recently, after his impressive performance in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day as he won a penalty and set up a Romelu Lukaku goal.

‘I think he was brilliant,’ said Tuchel. ‘I was never frustrated with him today. He had one bad decision under pressure when he tried to do a back-heel in front of the coaching staff, maybe there was an easier solution to escape the pressure with an easy pass, there was a clear pass. But I was never frustrated with him today.’

Lazio sit eighth in Serie A and are into the knockout stages of the Europa League where they will take on Porto in February.

Hudson-Odoi may be likely to play more regularly for Sarri’s side, but they can not offer him a genuine challenge for the league title and possible charge at the Champions League.
