Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is expected to be announced as Chelsea boss soon.

According to Daily Mail, one of Lampard’s first tasks as Chelsea boss will be to convince Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign a new deal.

The 18 year old’s contract runs out in 2020 and Bayern Munich are very interested in the exciting winger.

Bayern’s £22million bid last week was rejected by Chelsea and if Hudson-Odoi fails to sign a new contract, Bayern Munich will reportedly make a move for the youngster in January when the transfer fee would be much reduced.

Given Chelsea’s transfer ban and Eden Hazard’s exit to Real Madrid this summer, keeping Hudson-Odoi at the club is a priority.

Chelsea are set to offer the 18 year old winger a new five year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge and develop into a world-class player under Frank Lampard.

Hudson-Odoi has spent the summer rehabilitating from his ruptured Achilles tendon and the youngster is a quicker than expected return.

According to Daily Mail, Hudson-Odoi 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.
