Chelsea Ace Set To Sign A Long-Term Contract At Stamford Bridge: A No-Brainer For Lampard?

According to a recent report by the Daily Mail, Chelsea speedster Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to pen a new long-term deal with the club. The same source has mentioned that the Pensioners winger will sign a five-year contract and is set to earn more than £100,000 per week in a deal which could potentially rise to £10m per annum.

The West London outfit are facing a two-transfer window ban, and so they are in dire need of retaining their top talents. Thus, this latest development will be a welcome bit of news for everyone associated with Chelsea as Hudson-Odoi has the potential to be a future star at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi’s Frustrations In English Football Last Season

The English talent experienced a frustrating spell during Maurizio Sarri’s reign as the Chelsea manager last season. However, Frank Lampard’s appointment as the new boss this summer could mean that he could feature for the Pensioners more often in the Premier League.

Hudson-Odoi made just six top-flight appearances for the London giants last season while creating one assist. He managed to complete an average of 1.2 dribbles per game in the top tier of England (stats via whoscored).

The English Winger’s Life At West London Thus Far

The London-born prospect has a very bright future in the Premier League. However, he is currently out injured and would need time to recover before he is back to his best on the pitch. With only a year remaining on his contract, the Pensioners will do well to secure Hudson-Odoi’s services for the long-run.

The English starlet scored six goals and provided seven assists in 29 matches for Chelsea on all fronts last season. He has also managed to earn two international caps for Gareth Southgate’s England national team so far. 

The Chelsea youth product boasts blistering pace and is a very penetrative dribbler with the ball out on the flanks. He needs to add more goals and assists to his game in the upcoming campaign so that he can break into the world-class bracket in the coming years.

Hudson-Odoi Set To Pen A New Five-Year Deal: Was It A No-Brainer For The Pensioners?

Hudson-Odoi has all the makings of a world-class talent, so it was a no-brainer for Lampard to retain the English wide player’s services for the long-run. He will only get better with each season as long as the new Chelsea boss is prepared to hand him regular first-team opportunities at the Bridge next season.
