Chelsea’s Hudson-Odoi close to new deal following Lampard talks – Goal

Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of the brightest young English talents currently honing his craft in the Premier League.

The young winger did struggle somewhat for game time at the beginning of last season.

However, he would slowly be given more minutes over the course of the 2018/19 campaign.

CHO was particularly impressive in the Europa League for the Blues.

In nine EL appearances, five of which came as a sub, Hudson-Odoi scored four and assisted two.

Hudson-Odoi also made 10 Premier League appearances this past season, though only four of those came as a starter.

Lampard talks

However, Hudson-Odoi’s 2018/19 season was brought to an abrupt end when he suffered a ruptured Achilles in April.

The 18-year-old is recovering well, though, and it has recently been reported that he is targeting an August return.

And Chelsea’s fans have been handed another boost regarding the young prospect today.

Hudson-Odoi has previously been pretty heavily linked with a move to German giants, Bayern Munich.

Now, though, according to Goal, Hudson-Odoi is close to signing a new deal at Chelsea, after meeting with new boss, Frank Lampard.

Given the fact that Chelsea are currently serving a two-window transfer ban, keeping someone like Hudson-Odoi at Stamford Bridge would be a huge result for the Blues.
