Arsenal battle for Chelsea star's signature as Edu aims to bolster Arteta's in-form Gunners with further signings


Arsenal have been linked with a move for Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi - as the Gunners target more signings before the transfer deadline.

Blues star Hudson-Odoi has been linked with a surprise move to Arsenal this summer as Edu looks to satisfy Mikel Arteta's transfer demands.

However, the Gunners are set to face a battle for the young Stamford Bridge attacker - with Newcastle, Leicester and Southampton also understood to be interested. 

The 21-year-old is said to be a major target for Eddie Howe's Gallowgate revolution - but the north easterners would face signficiant competition from the North Londoners after Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel gave Hudson-Odoi the green light to leave the club in the summer – but only on loan.

However, the German is also happy for the 21-year-old to stay and show everyone exactly what he is capable of.

Asked if Hudson-Odoi was for sale this summer, Tuchel said: “In general, nobody is for sale and everybody is for sale.

"It depends on what the player wants, how bad the players wants it, what we think, who is ready to pay a certain amount of money."
