Frank Lampard says that he "would love" Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign a long-term contract with Chelsea, amid rumours that he is seeking a move to Bayern Munich.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has told Callum Hudson-Odoi to knuckle down and force his way into Maurizio Sarri's starting lineup.

The 18-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge remains in doubt after he allegedly handed in a transfer request during the January transfer window.

Bayern Munich had three bids for the teenage forward knocked back at the turn of the year, but they may return with a fresh offer in the summer.

Hudson-Odoi has made 17 appearances for the Blues this season, though just five of those have been starts, each in cup competitions.

Lampard has urged the England Under-19s international to make the most of his opportunities when they arrive, telling talkSPORT: "Firstly, I'd love him to stay at Chelsea.

"He needs to be doing everything to get in that team. Is he working hard and is he developing every day in training and trying to improve? I don't know him that well but I'm sure that's the standard at Chelsea he's going by himself.

"Every minute he gets on the pitch he needs to be doing everything he can. I understand Chelsea fans want to see more of him and he has to do everything he can to give himself the chance of minutes.

"I think at the end of the season he will look back and think what can I do with my career. It's a mad one because a young English player at Chelsea at that age then you really want him to sign that long-term contract. I hope it can be agreed that he can stay at Chelsea."

Hudson-Odoi has scored three goals in his last seven appearances, most recently capping a 3-0 win over Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League last week.
