The latest reports in the press suggest that Bayern Munich could once again be eyeing up a move for Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Hudson-Odoi’s struggle for game time
The Chelsea winger was heavily linked with the German champions a few years back but those rumours died down somewhat following CHO penning a new contract.
The last few months of the 2020/21 campaign, however, have seen Hudson-Odoi fall out of favour somewhat.
When Thomas Tuchel took the reins at Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi was featuring fairly regularly in a somewhat new role.
The winger was deployed in a right-wing-back role in a back-five formation, featuring in Tuchel’s first seven Premier League games.
However, as the weeks went by, Tuchel began to play the 20-year-old less and less, instead choosing to deploy either Cesar Azpilicueta or Reece James at RWB.
Further forward, meanwhile, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech look to be ahead of Hudson-Odoi in the attacking pecking order.
Bayern eyeing Hudson-Odoi
As a result, it isn’t too surprising to see speculation about the Englishman’s future returning this week.
According to a report from The Times, Chelsea will consider offers for Hudson-Odoi as Bayern Munich renew their interest in him.
It is added that Tuchel is an admirer of CHO, but has many options in the attacking wide positions.
Bayern, for their part, are said to be looking to sign a winger after Douglas Costa’s loan ended and Kingsley Coman’s contract negotiations began to stall.
No potential transfer fee is touted in the report, but it is hard to see Chelsea letting the young Englishman go on the cheap.
