The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues are close to appointing Lampard as their new boss and sorting out Hudson-Odoi’s situation will be one of his first priorities.
The same story says that Bayern Munich are still interested in signing the 18-year-old this summer, with Hudson-Odoi’s current contract set to expire at the end of next season.
It is claimed in the same story that Chelsea FC rejected a £22m bid from Bayern last week for Hudson-Odoi – and the Blues seem intent on trying to keep hold of the teenager.
According to the same article, keeping Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea FC is a “priority” for the Blues given their transfer ban and the sale of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last month.
The story says that Chelsea FC are prepared to offer Hudson-Odoi a new five-year contract because they want him to stay at the club and develop under Lampard.
Hudson-Odoi was more of a regular fixture in the Chelsea FC team in the second half of last season but his campaign was cut short due to an Achilles injury.
