​Chelsea will reaffirm their interest in extending Callum Hudson-Odoi's current deal with the club whilst he recovers from the ruptured Achilles that has brought his season to a premature end.


Hudson-Odoi started his fourth Premier League game of the season against Burnley on Monday evening, but was forced to come off injured just before the half-time interval. The youngster later took to Twitter to confirm that he would be out of action for the remainder of the season.

According to ​The Telegraph​t​he injury is likely to bring ​Bayern Munich's hopes of signing him to an end and ​Chelsea would be looking to take advantage of the situation by offering him an improved deal.


Hudson-Odoi had been the subject of significant interest from Bayern Munich and ​Borussia Dortmund during the January transfer window after he handed in a transfer request, but Chelsea instead prevented him from leaving the club and subsequently provided him with more regular first team minutes.


The report from The Telegraph claims that the 18-year-old can expect to earn £100,000-a-week if he decides to extend his current deal with Chelsea, which would make him one of the highest paid teenagers in Europe.

It could also provide a boost for Chelsea if they are forced to sell ​Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window as the Belgian's departure could free up Hudson-Odoi’s favoured position on the left flank.


It's unclear when exactly Hudson-Odoi will be fit to return, but recovery times for Achilles injuries can often be lengthy, which unfortunately rules him out for the Nations League Finals with England in June.
