Bayern Munich target Chelsea starlet

Bayern Munich are interested in taking Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi to Germany.

The Bundesliga champions are looking for long-term replacements for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery and have identified the 18-year-old Hudson-Odoi as a potential target.

The winger impressed in pre-season, starting the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City, but has grown frustrated having found his first-team opportunities limited to two Europa League substitute appearances so far this season.

The Sun are now reporting that Bayern are leading the chase for his services, with the youngster yet to commit to a new contract and having just 18 months left on his current deal at Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi has seen Jadon Sancho, an England Under-17 World Cup winning teammate, flourish since leaving England for Germany and is keen to follow suit. A move to Bayern would continue a trend of English youngsters succeeding in the Bundesliga, with Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson also thriving on-loan at Hoffenheim.

It remains unlikely Chelsea would be willing to part with a highly-rated home-grown talent, but Bayern are confident they can beat off competition from the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal for the teenagers signature.
