Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly growing increasingly disillusioned with his lack of senior team opportunities and is ready to speak with manager Frank Lampard about his future at Chelsea.
The 19-year-old ace has not started either of Chelsea’s opening two PL fixtures, playing just 10 minutes off the bench versus Brighton, while the ace was only used sporadically after the restart at the end of last campaign.
Hudson-Odoi came close to quitting Chelsea a couple of years ago when manager Maurizio Sarri was in charge, with Bayern Munich making a big play for Callum’s signature, but he signed a new contract and was expected to feature more prominently under Frank.
That hasn’t happened, however, and Hudson-Odoi’s opportunities have been further limited by a host of attacking summer acquisitions in the form of Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
According to The Athletic, Callum is not particularly pleased with his current situation and his agents are planning to speak to the club.
The England youth international wants to discuss how much of a role he has to play under Frank and would even consider leaving, particularly with Callum’s chances likely to be even more limited in the coming weeks.
The Athletic‘s report even goes as far as to suggest that the Blues are already working on a deal that will see the Englishman loaned out and a move ‘could be finalised by the weekend’.
He is conscious that his place in his country’s senior team for the European Championships next summer hinges on him playing frequently, so a loan to a Premier League club could suit all parties.
