Callum Hudson-Odoi is one of the brightest young prospects in English football.
Despite being just 18 years of age, Hudson-Odoi already looks like he could become a top Premier League talent.
The winger’s game time was somewhat limited by Maurizio Sarri last season, particularly in the PL.
However, in the limited minutes that he received, CHO looked a real talent, managing to score four and assist two in nine Europa League outings.
Hudson-Odoi & Bayern
While he wasn’t getting much game time at Chelsea, Bayern Munich looked to want to pry Hudson-Odoi away from Stamford Bridge.
It was reported back in January that the 18-year-old had handed in a transfer request, with the BBC claiming at the time that Bayern had bid £35m for his services.
However, since Frank Lampard took over at Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi appears a bit more settled.
Lampard has made it quite public that he wants Hudson-Odoi to stay put, and be a central player at Chelsea:
“I am not going to say things that are pie in the sky. But, with his talent, he can be central to this team, he can be central to England.
“He can show, right here at Chelsea, the team he came through the academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player – because I truly believe that.
“I will pay a lot of care and attention to Callum. Because of the contractual position he is in – to try to get him to stay, and not with any lies or any false statements to him.
“That of course goes to a decision between him and the club. And I am not involved in the financial negotiations. But I can certainly tell him how I see it and I see him being a huge player for us.” As quoted by BBC Sport.
The BBC also reported that CHO himself was hopeful of signing a new deal after the praise he received from Lampard.
Now, however, it looks as though Bayern Munich have reignited their interest in Hudson-Odoi.
According to German outlet Bild, Bayern are readying a fresh bid for the Chelsea attacker.
Bild journalist Christian Falk also confirmed a report on Twitter, claiming that the bid will be around £45m.
