After signing a new five-year contract at Chelsea, Frank Lampard has hinted at building his team around Callum Hudson-Odoi.
The English winger was linked with a move to Bayern Munich back in January but Chelsea managed to hold on to the youngster despite him submitting a transfer request. Hudson-Odoi is closing in on a return to first-team action having missed the final month of last season as well as the first seven games across all competitions of the current campaign through injury.
Speaking after signing his contract, Lampard revealed the plans he has for Hudson-Odoi, "I have seen Callum come through and he's a fantastic talent. He is going to be central for us on the pitch and that is the opportunity in front of him now.
"There are things as a young player that he will want to improve but he can be central to this team and for England. I want to work with him, I want to drive him forward and I want to improve him as a player. Callum can show, right here at Chelsea, the club he came through the Academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player because I truly believe that."
