Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says Callum Hudson-Odoi is in his first-team plans but concedes the winger could leave before the transfer window closes amid interest from Bayern Munich. The 19-year-old started against Crystal Palace today and produced an impressive display against the Eagles. And after the 4-0 win, Lampard was asked about the future of the Blues academy graduate.
Frank Lampard said “Callum is absolutely part of my plans here. We have [Christian] Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech injured before Christian came back in today. We need options and what Callum showed today and the second half against West Brom is exactly what he needs to show. I am pleased with him. There is no definitive answer. By Monday we will know the answer. They might have declared their interest, which is one thing, but as I have just said there in terms of the squad, everything that happens by Monday will be things that are firstly good for us as a club because Callum is our player, and what Callum wants comes into consideration. It has to be right for everybody. At the minute I want Callum as part of my squad, especially with what he offered up today and the second half against West Brom. That is where I am at. Yes, I can clear it up (Tammy Abraham Penalty Situation), I think Tammy with maybe his youthful exuberance and the performance that he had in the game that was very good, made a bit of a mistake and he wanted to take the penalty, It is not [right]. We have a designated penalty taker and you saw it with the first penalty. It has been dealt with in the dressing room but no problem either.”
