Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
The 18-year-old turned down an £85,000-a-week contract offer in January and later submitted a transfer request despite the Blues rejecting several bids from Bayern Munich.
However, Lampard sees Hudson-Odoi as a key part of his plans and wants him to put pen to paper on a new deal as the German champions continue to show their interest.
"With Callum, of course, I want him to sign [a new deal] and stay here," Lampard told reporters ahead of Chelsea's friendly against Kawasaki Frontale on Friday.
"I said that before I came here - just talking generally - and I said it when I first got here. He is a player that came through the academy, he is a player that can be a big player for Chelsea and for England. We - as a club, for sure - want him to stay."
The England international is understood to be no closer to agreeing a new deal, with Bayern having a fourth bid of £22.5m rejected last month.
Hudson-Odoi is currently sidelined with an Achilles injury suffered in April and will almost certainly miss the start of the Premier League season.body check tags ::
