According to transfer expert Ian McGarry, Chelsea are willing to sell Callum Hudson-Odoi in January to ease Frank Lampard’s frustration at the size of his squad.
Hudson-Odoi has found himself down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following an influx of summer signings and has started just one Premier League game this season.
“It’s our understanding that there are some issues regarding the overload of attacking midfielders in Chelsea’s squad,” McGarry said on the Transfer Window Podcast.
“I think we all realise and know they spent heavily, obviously, in the summer and indeed last January (2019) if you count Christian Pulisic.
“They also invested heavily in a new contract for Callum Hudson-Odoi, who was attracting interest from Bayern Munich.
“It’s our information that Frank Lampard is becoming slightly frustrated by the size and the imbalance of his squad, and would be willing to allow Hudson-Odoi to leave the club.
“He’s currently injured obviously, which makes that difficult in the January window.
“But it doesn’t mean to say that, as he is under a new contract, he could not attract offers in excess of €35m-€45m for the young England international.”
