Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi hopes to hand new Chelsea boss Frank Lampard a boost by returning from his achilles injury by the start of September, according to Daily Mail.
The 18 year old ruptured his achilles against Burnley back in April and it was feared he would be out for six months.
Hudson-Odoi has reportedly made progress in his recovery and is due to head back to Barcelona, where he had his operation, in the next fortnight for another check-up with the renowned surgeon Ramon Cugat who carried out the procedure to repair his achilles.
If Hudson-Odoi gets a thumbs up from surgeon Cugat, he will be cleared to accelerate his rehabilitation on his return to Chelsea.
Chelsea have four league games in August followed by a two-week international break and Hudson-Odoi is expected to be unavailable for selection during this period.
The Blues face Wolves in mid-September after the international break and Hudson-Odoi will be hopefully available for selection.
This is definitely be a huge boost to incoming boss Lampard, who would want to be able to work with his full squad as soon as possible.
