According to Daily Mail, talented Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is becoming Chelsea’s forgotten man despite signing a new five-year deal at Chelsea worth a money-spinning £180,000 per week rising to £200,000 per week.

Daily Mail wrote: “Will Callum Hudson-Odoi become Chelsea’s forgotten man? That seemed impossible just over a year ago but the talented youngster is facing a battle at Stamford Bridge.

“In September 2019, the winger signed a new five-year deal at Chelsea worth a money-spinning £180,000 per week rising to £200,000 per week.

“That was a signal of intent by the Blues, who had rebuffed Bayern Munich’s heavy pursuit for the then 18-year-old.

“However, fast forward to the present and Hudson-Odoi – who turned 20 on Saturday – is down the pecking order in west London. Summer signing Hakim Ziyech has shone already in Hudson-Odoi’s preferred right-wing position, while on the other flank Christian Pulisic will regain his spot when fully fit.

“This season Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Mason Mount have all been deployed out wide too, showing the strength of depth in Lampard’s options.

“England international Hudson-Odoi has only started four of Chelsea’s 13 games in all competitions this season so far. He has ambitions of being in the England squad for the delayed Euro 2020 campaign next summer but won’t achieve that without regular playing time.

“And with all that going on his situation is being closely monitored by Bayern who are still waiting in the wings at the opportunity to swoop in.”
