New Blues boss Frank Lampard has been desperate in his bid to convince the 18-year-old to pen a new contract at the club.

His current deal expires next summer and Hudson-Odoi holds all the cards knowing clubs across Europe will be scrambling for a bargain.

But it appears increasing likely that the forward will commit his long-term future to the club in a deal worth around £100,000-a-week.

According to the Independent, Bayern have given up on their hopes of signing him knowing they are in a losing battle.

The news will delight Lampard who spoke of his intentions to work with Hudson-Odoi closely.

He recently said: “Callum came through the Academy and can be a big player for us and England.

“He knows he has a boss here who wants to work with him to improve.

“There are a few younger players now. Some have signed, some will sign in the next month or so.”

A new deal will mean he is set to join Mason Mount and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as homegrown talent committing their futures to the club.
