Is Callum Hudson-Odoi about to wave goodbye to Chelsea?

According to Sky Sports on Tuesday, Bayern Munich have tabled a fourth official bid with Chelsea for Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Bayern are meeting Chelsea’s full asking price of 35 million pounds.

It’s worth noting that Bayern’s all-time record signing is Corentin Tolisso, who cost 41 million euros.

Why are Bayern willing to pay so much?

Hudson-Odoi, the 18-year-old English winger, has only featured in one Premier League match this season.

In four appearances in the Europa League he has one goal.

Hudson-Odoi also grabbed two assists last weekend as Chelsea knocked Nottingham Forest out the FA Cup.

While Hudson-Odoi has undoubted potential, he’s far from the polished product.

Bayern Munich are facing a big problem in the immediate future.

Their squad is ageing, particularly in their wide areas where Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben have been operating for years.

Replacing the French and Dutch wizards isn’t going to be easy.

Bayern may have to draft in several potential replacements knowing that not all all of them may work out.

Is that where Hudson-Odoi fits into Bayern’s long term plans?
