    On the basis that his reputation comes from one good season in the championship and a lot of media hype from a year ago.

    He's worth a punt sure but that's all it is at this point for me.

    Find me an 18 year-old who has contributed 8 goals and assists in the Premier League in the last few years from a non-striker role. The only one I could find was Sterling, who also had 8 in his 19 y/o season on a very good Liverpool team.

    Richarlison is a good comp top. He got 5 goals and 4 assists for Watford as a 20 y/o and was sold to Everton for 50 million, and it looks like a pretty good signing for them.

    Hudson-Odoi would probably be worth 40 to 50 million and he could only manage one assist in the Prem and is the same age. The only one who you would say is a better young English prospect is Sancho, and he would cost upwards of 100 million.

    This is a no-brainer signing for around 25 million for a homegrown player, and I would be so annoyed if we didn’t get it over the line.

    Also, one more little thing on Sessegnon. If you remove the minutes he played at LB, his attacking numbers weren’t far off Zaha’s, who is 8 years older and might get sold to Arsenal for 60 million this summer. Pretty damn impressive.

    That's such a good point. Poch has improved just about every young (and even not young) player who we've bought to the club, absolutely no reason that he wouldn't do the same w/ someone with as much potential as Sessegnon. Make it happen, Daniel.

    How many appearances has Hudson-Odoi had? not exactly the best way to compare players when some have only got a few starts here and there. Its like the whole Sherwood having our best win ratio, completely irrelevant.

    Well Hudson Odoi has been hyped up wayyyyyy beyond his achievements because he is English and is at Chelsea

    Ottawa, actually.
    This. He didn't look like anything special when they played us. Upscale Andros Townsend, it seemed like.

    That’s fair, and to be clear, CHO produced 1 g/a in about 450 minutes, which isn’t near the ratio Sess produced at in a poor team (1 g/a in 300 ish). And, being an attacker In a team like Chelsea (especially as CHO tended to only play against poorer teams) is so much easier than producing in a poor team. And, also, I’m not saying CHO isn’t a better prospect than Sessegnon, which is up for debate. but to get that level of prospect for 25 mil who can also play fullback is something we should be allll over.

    Given me food for thought with that response, interesting numbers from last season and in comparison to others - thanks
