​Chelsea hero Sinclair: Is Sancho an upgrade on Hudson-Odoi?

Chelsea legend Frank Sinclair is unsure whether summer target Jadon Sancho is an improvement on what they have got.

The Blues are blessed with a lot of young talent, especially in the wide positions.

The likes of Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi have impressed this season.

And Sinclair thinks the latter is almost as good as Borussia Dortmund's Sancho.

"Jadon Sancho is a fantastic player and a great talent but he plays in similar positions to the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi and Willian, so there will be tough competition for places if he does join in the summer," Sinclair told GentingBet.

"Whether he is a Chelsea target, I don't know, as Chelsea have more than enough players in those positions that can play in those wide areas or in the No.10 role – they have plenty of options.

"Is Sancho any better than Hudson-Odoi on that left-hand side? When you look at the potential of both players, would you spend close to £150 million ($186m), which I'd expect he would cost, to bring Jadon Sancho to this country or would you just stick to Callum Hudson-Odoi?

"Personally, I don't think Jadon Sancho automatically gets into Chelsea's team."
