Bayern Munich have been long term admirers of Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi, and the Bavarians have made an offer for the 19-year-old in a bid to sign him up this summer.

The summer transfer window closes in two days, and it won’t make sense for Chelsea to let Hudson-Odoi leave at this time, as the club may not be able to sign an ample replacement, knowing that Chelsea are short of wingers, following the departure of Willian and Pedro, with Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech having been out injured.

Hudson-Odoi impressed in the 3-3 comeback against West Brom as he came on to change the game and had a good outing in the 4-0 win against Crystal Palace.

Bayern had offered to take the 19-year-old on loan for the rest of this season with an option to buy for £70m next summer.

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea have rejected Bayern’s approach for the highly rated Chelsea youngster.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said after the game against Palace that anything could happen in the deal for Hudson-Odoi.

Lampard said when pressed on a response regarding his future: “There is no definitive answer, we will know by Monday whether there is. Callum is our player, what Callum wants comes into consideration, it has to work for us.”
