Arsenal attacker Reiss Nelson says he has been ‘inspired’ by Callum Hudson-Odoi’s rapid rise to prominence at Chelsea this season.
The 18-year-old has racked up 16 appearances across all competitions for the Blues this season, most notably playing a starring role in their Europa League campaign.
Hudson-Odoi has found regular starts in the Premier League hard to come by, but he has hit four goals in Europe to help Chelsea reach the quarter-finals of the competition.
The teenager’s recent performances earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for 2020 European Championship qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro, and he has been tipped for a bright future at the highest level.
Meanwhile, Nelson, who is currently plying his trade in Germany on a season-long loan at Hoffenheim, has revealed he is aspiring to reach the same level as Hudson-Odoi, despite a frustrating start to 2019.
The 19-year-old scored six goals for the Bundesliga outfit during the first half of the campaign, but he has failed to retain his spot in the starting XI since the turn of the year.
