Not only are Chelsea producing top young talents within their academy, nurturing players from a young age as they rise through the ranks at the club, but under the new ownership, they are also looking to sign up many of the top prospects in world football right now.
The summer has been a prime example of this, with the likes of Gabriel Slonina, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Omari Hutchinson all being signed from other top clubs. Hutchinson was a particularly good coup from local rivals Arsenal, and already he is shining bright in our youth team.
The winger is looking super impressive and already looks levels above the U21s, and he is only just about to turn 19 himself. His future is bright, and let’s hope it is at Chelsea and we manage his development well.
By managing his development, I would like to see him go out on loan in the summer, or maybe even in January if that is a topic of conversation and he goes to the right club who will play him. He needs to play games, and he needs to play senior matches, right now.
But before he is loaned out, he needs to be given his Chelsea senior debut, perhaps off the bench in a cup game. We need to show him that he is valued and rated here, but even more than that, he would actually be a real weapon and asset for us off the bench in the cup. He’s very close to a call-up soon and he has already been training under Graham Potter, I believe he is set to get some minutes very soon.
He is scoring goals for fun at youth level and absolutely dominating games and defenders. His penalty this week in his most recent game, as seen below, shows you just how devastating he is. He certainly has that X-Factor, and he has it all about his game.
Chelsea could really use his directness, pace, and skill in their team right now, so there is no reason why we shouldn’t at least introduce him with some minutes this season before he sets off out on loan.
