Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay and fight for a place in the team.

The 18-year-old wants a move in the summer due to lack of play time from Sarri with a host of clubs in Europe wanting to sign him. But Lampard believes Hudson-Odoi can break into the first team and he should stay and fight for his place.

"Firstly, I'd love him to stay at Chelsea," he told talkSPORT.

"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."
