It has been reported in the Italian press over recent days that Liverpool are keeping tabs on Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The 20-year-old has struggled for game time under manager Thomas Tuchel and it was suggested that the Reds could take advantage of the situation.
However, fans on Twitter are rather sceptical about the accuracy of the story with some even claiming that Hudson-Odoi would not improve the first-team squad:

Liverpool have been linked with Hudson-Odoi over the past few years but that was mainly before the winger signed a contract extension back in September 2019.
With his current deal set to expire in 2024, there would be no chance of snapping him up on the cheap, and it would be a surprise if Chelsea accepted any approach from a direct rival. The likeliest outcome currently is a loan deal to another country in January if he continues to have limited opportunities under Tuchel.
