Since joining Arsenal as a young player from Charlton Athletic, Hutchinson has not played for the main team. The 18-year-old has made an impression while playing for Arsenal’s junior teams, but this summer he may be moving on to one of their Premier League rivals.
In the tweet below, writer Freddie Paxton asserts that Hutchinson is expected to sign with Chelsea this summer.
The post from Paxton suggests he anticipates more young players leaving Arsenal this summer, which will alarm supporters at The Emirates.
Mikel Arteta has created a mindset at the club that places a strong emphasis on developing young players, but it would be a mistake if they started to let any of their young talent go to Premier League competitors.
A team like Chelsea being prepared to recruit Hutchinson is a hint that the 18-year-old is a talented young player because academy players from the top Premier League clubs sometimes depart to pursue careers in the lower divisions of English football.
