Martin Ødegaard: Öde To Joy

This. He was judged unfairly on his performance against Villareal despite it being his first start after injury. You could tell he wasn't 100% because he didn't try to dribble anyone until the Brighton game where he was magnificent and closer to his displays against West Ham pre-injury.

Say what you want about Arteta and Edu, but I think going for Ødegaard over Buendia actually shows ambition, because the former's ceiling is a lot higher and comes with a higher sticker price.
Ambition would be going for both, competition would only be good being realistic, Chelsea didnt seem to mind having Pulisic and Ziyech on the bench.

Leaving Beundia go because theres a chance of getting Ødegaard is a big gamble... might work out but just as easily it might now.

There's a good chance both of them ends up being on our bench if we sign them........... both are inferior to ESR and there's a good case to be made that we should be playing Martinelli + Pepe more often next season.

Well Im not too hot on Pepe, but even if they Pepe and Martinelli are playing more often you still have great options and can play more than one way. As Ive pointed out Chelsea lose someone to injury they have Pulisic and Ziyech on the bench. Hence the ambition, they can challenge for the title and Champions league because they have high quality options.
