This Chelsea Ace Step Up Talks For Contract Renewal: A Big Boost For Lampard?

According to a recent report by the Sun, English winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is stepping up negotiations with Chelsea over a fresh contract after he received assurances from his new boss Frank Lampard. In a recent interview (mentioned by the Sun), the Pensioners boss provided an update when he said, “Callum came through the Academy and can be a big player for us and England.

“He knows he has a boss here who wants to work with him to improve.

“There are a few younger players now. Some have signed, some will sign in the next month or so.”

Chelsea can cope with their two-transfer window ban by retaining the services of their younger talents. Hence, this latest development will be a huge boost for the West London outfit as they try to win some silverware next season.

Hudson-Odoi’s Frustrations At Stamford Bridge Last Season

The English speedster endured a difficult season under Maurizio Sarri’s stewardship as he failed to secure too many first-team opportunities in the Premier League. However, he still managed to put in some impressive displays for Chelsea in the previous campaign.

Hudson-Odoi is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in English football. However, he is currently out injured, which means that he has to come back stronger than ever to make a positive impression at Stamford Bridge next season. With just a year left to run in his contract, the Pensioners whizkid should consider penning a new deal so that he can concentrate on improving his game on the field.

Hudson-Odoi made 29 appearances for the Blues of London in the last term, finding the back of the net six times while creating seven assists on all fronts. At such a young age, he is set to play a crucial role in Lampard’s first-team next season. The London-born wing wizard has also secured two international caps for Gareth Southgate’s England national side thus far. 

Hudson-Odoi Stepping Up Talks Of A New Deal: Massive Boost For The Pensioners?

There is no doubt that Hudson-Odoi has all the skillset required to be a success story under Lampard’s tutelage at Stamford Bridge. The English teenager boasts blistering pace, which enables him to make some penetrative dribbles down the right flank. He can also score goals or create assists consistently at the highest level if given enough game time on the field.

Thus, Hudson-Odoi’s interest in penning a new contract will be a huge boost for Lampard as he tries to build a strong squad capable of challenging across all competitions next season.
