CHELSEA will reportedly offer Callum Hudson-Odoi a new deal worth £100,000-a-week in a desperate attempt to tie him down.
The Blues are keen to fend off interest for the 18-year-old from the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich.
According to the Standard, Chelsea will hold talks with Hudson-Odoi over a contract extension before the end of the season.
The youngster has just over a year to run on his reported 22,000-per-week deal, but he rejected the club’s £85,000 offer in January.
He is reluctant to commit his future to Stamford Bridge until he is guaranteed first-team football.
Hudson-Odoi is yet to make a start in the Premier League despite scoring four goals in eight Europa League games.
Maurizio Sarri has allowed him just 119 minutes of football in the league – which is less than two dozen teens across Europe.
In total this season, he has scored five goals and made four assists in 19 appearances in all competitions.
Bayern Munich are expected to reignite their interest in him this summer after they saw four bids rejected at the start of the year.

The final bid from the German giants was £35million, but the Blues refused to let the youngster leave.
Chelsea are at risk of losing him on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of next season.
Manchester United are also expected to offer the England international his escape route from Stamford Bridge.
