AccAccording to talkSPORT, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is pushing for a Chelsea exit this summer after snub from Frank Lampard.

The highly-rated England international, 19, has fallen down the pecking order for the 2020/21 campaign with the summer signings of Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Before his start in the Carabao Cup against Barnsley, Hudson-Odoi had only played 10 minutes of football this season.

Being afforded Carabao Cup chances is not enough for Hudson-Odoi, who wants to be playing regular football as he nears his 20th birthday.

German champions Bayern Munich remain interested in signing Hudson-Odoi following news he is pushing for a Chelsea exit.

Lampard did praise Hudson-Odoi after the winger played the full 90 minutes of the Blues’ 6-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley, saying: “I think he did well.

“Not easy with not so many minutes, he is the same as some others in the same boat at the moment. I thought at parts he looked fresh and sharp.

“We talk about work ethic, which he showed really well in terms of getting the ball back for us, recovery runs, all the things which must be absolutely standard in his game.

“If you look at the top wingers in the Premier League and how they play. He showed loads of great moments. I was really pleased with Callum, I thought he had a good night.”
