Omari Hutchinson, an attacking midfielder for Arsenal, is reportedly “certain” to join Chelsea, according to the Secret Scout.
In an effort to progress toward playing at the senior level, the 18-year-old will join the Blues’ Under 23s, the insider claims:
According to other sources, Hutchinson already underwent a medical at Cobham before deciding to join Chelsea, so it seems that this agreement is still a ways off.
Hutchinson’s chances of playing for the Gunners’ first team are minimal, but it’s quite unusual for a prestigious Premier League club to move one of their most promising young players to another top-flight team.
Martin Odegaard and their most recent addition Fabio Vieira are above him in the hierarchy for his chosen number 10 spot. Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka won’t be leaving their roles as backup players anytime soon.
Hutchinson seems to be confident that he will have a greater chance of making his first team debut under Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.
