Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is happy and excited about the clubs future, despite speculation suggesting that the talented winger is frustrated about the amount of playing time he has been given this campaign.
Earlier in the season the 19-year-old signed a five-year-deal to fend off strong interest from Bayern Munich. Frank Lampard convinced the player to stay and issued that he is part of his plans for the foreseeable future.
However, since the resumption of the Premier League, Hudson-Odoi has only played 48 minutes in a Chelsea shirt. The amount of playing time he has been given may question his position at Stamford Bridge and consider a move away from the club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
But Nizaar Kinsella has played down those reports of frustration and insists the Chelsea youngster is happy to remain in west London.
Since football returned, Chelsea’s other wingers, Christian Pulisic and Willian have been in exceptional form as the blues edge closer in securing Champions League football for next season.
With the transfer window approaching, Chelsea remain active in securing their priority targets. So far they have acquired attacking talent and Hudson-Odoi will face tougher competition next season. Hakim Ziyech’s arrival from Ajax, Timo Werner swapping Bundesliga for the Premier League, and potentially Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen as terms are close to being agreed.
As much as the club are making signings in attacking areas, Chelsea have also been linked with a move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice. The possibility of Michy Batshuayi and Ross Barkley going the other way has been suggested which would sweeten the deal.
