CHELSEA could save themselves millions in January by activating a reported clause in a forgotten star’s contract.

Life under new boss Graham Potter got off to a good start.

The Blues went on a nine-game unbeaten run, winning six of those fixtures.

However, things have gone flat at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, with Chelsea losing four of their last five fixtures, including a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Potter’s old team Brighton.

And Potter’s men have failed to score in their last three fixtures against Newcastle, Manchester City and Arsenal heading into the World Cup break.

The poor form could see Chelsea dip into the transfer market in January.

But they could save themselves millions in attacking reinforcements by activating academy product Callum Hudson-Odoi’s recall option, according to Kicker.

Hudson-Odoi, 22, joined German side Bayer Leverkusen on loan in the summer, hoping to kick-start his career.

The English winger has made nine appearances for Leverkusen this term.

However, he has only managed to find the net once, while also failing to register an assist.

His fast footwork and raw speed could be of use to Chelsea, though, who have looked flat in attack.

Hudson-Odoi has made 126 first-team appearances for Chelsea to date.

In those games, he has managed 16 goals and 22 assists.

Chelsea may be battling to hold on to winger Hakim Ziyech, who AC Milan may try to land on loan in the New Year.

Elsewhere, Memphis Depay and Leon Bailey have been mooted as possible transfer targets.
