Thierry Henry is reportedly looking to acquire the services of Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi after being appointed as the new head coach of AS Monaco.

The former Arsenal man was handed his first chance at management with the Principality outfit earlier last week and he is said to have already noted his plans for the winter transfer window.

According to The Mail, the Frenchman is keeping a close eye on the proceedings of Callum Hudson-Odoi with the help of Michael Emenalo, who was previously the technical director at the west London side.

Aside from Monaco, RB Leipzig are also considering a move for the teenage forward, who has yet to make his bow for the Blues since the Premier League season started.

Hudson-Odoi impressed for the Blues during pre-season which handed him a start in the Community Shield game against Manchester City, but he has since found himself out-of-favour with Sarri wanting him to show patience.
