The 19-year-old has not started either of Chelsea’s opening two Premier League fixtures, playing just 10 minutes off the bench against Brighton, while he was only used sporadically after the restart at the end of last season.
Hudson-Odoi came close to leaving Chelsea a couple of years ago when Maurizio Sarri was in charge, with Bayern Munich making a big play for his signature, but he signed a new deal and was expected to feature more prominently under Lampard.
That has not happened, however, and Hudson-Odoi’s opportunities have been further limited by host of attacking summer signings in the form of Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
According to The Athletic, Hudson-Odoi is not particularly pleased with his current situation and his representatives are planning to speak to the club.
The England Under-21 international wants to discuss how much of a role he has to play under Lampard and would even consider leaving, particularly with his chances likely to be even more limited in the coming weeks.
The Athletic‘s report even goes as far as to suggest that Chelsea are already working on a deal that will see Hudson-Odoi loaned out and a move ‘could be finalised by the weekend’.
Hudson-Odoi is conscious that his place in the England senior team for the European Championships next summer hinges on him playing regularly, so a loan to a Premier League club could suit all parties.
Despite his enormous potential, Hudson-Odoi has struggled to nail down a place in Lampard’s Chelsea team, scoring just once in 22 Premier League outings last season – though he did register five assists.
