Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola has urged his former club to do all they can to keep hold of Callum Hudson-Odoi because of the teenage winger's 'huge potential'.
The England international has been at the centre of a remarkable power struggle with Bayern Munich after the European Champions' audacious bid to sign the 19-year-old was rebuffed on transfer deadline day.
The German giants offered to take Hudson-Odoi on loan with an option to sign him next summer, which Sportsmail understands was for a fee of more than £80million.

Lampard, pictured with Hudson-Odoi last season, wants to keep the winger at Chelsea
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said after Saturday's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace - in which Hudson-Odoi started and played well - that he wanted to keep the winger and it seemed certain on transfer deadline day that he was staying put.
Lampard said Chelsea would have only let him go if it suited the club but also suggested Hudson-Odoi's own wishes would be taken into account.
