Dean Windass thinks that signing Callum Hudson-Odoi would make Everton’s front three “unbelievable”.
Whilst Hudson-Odoi doesn’t turn 21 until later this year, he’s already approaching the 100-appearance mark for Chelsea having made his first-team debut in an FA Cup tie just two months after his 17th birthday.
However, whilst the wide man appeared 37 times in all competitions last season, plenty of those were from the bench.
And with some of Chelsea’s other attacking players hitting top form towards the end of the campaign, the 20-year-old could seriously benefit from a season away from Stamford Bridge to get regular game-time.
That’s because just over half of those 37 outings were from the start, with Hudson-Odoi an unused substitute on 12 occasions under Thomas Tuchel.
With that in mind, Windass wants the youngster to play more regularly, and believes that Goodison Park might be the perfect destination for that to happen, especially with Everton’s right-wing position vacant.
He told Football FanCast:
“I like him. He’d be a great fit for Everton, I just want to see him have a run of games.
“He’s got pace, he’s an athlete, he’s a tall lad, with Richarlison on one side. Unbelievable front three. When I do watch him, I’d like to see him have a run of games and see how good he is.”
