Liverpool vs Bayern Munich

Christian Falk, the chief football writer for Germany’s Sport Bild, has posted an update on the transfer race to sign Hudson-Odoi this summer.

Back in January, Bayern Munich tried to sign the Chelsea teenager repeatedly.

The Blues rebuffed the approaches, amid reports that Hudson-Odoi could cost around 35 million pounds.

On Thursday, Christian Falk reports that Bayern retain an interest in Hudson-Odoi. However the talks between the Bavarians and Chelsea are at a standstill.

Could Liverpool also make a move? Falk reports that Liverpool are “still interested” in the Chelsea flyer.

Callum Hudson-Odoi’s next move

Hudson-Odoi is under contract at Chelsea until 2020.

Chelsea are under facing a UEFA transfer ban for the next two windows.

The Blues are appealing, however in the event the ban sticks, one would assume Chelsea would be reticent to selling Hudson-Odoi.

Yet, unless the youngster gets more minutes at Stamford Bridge, he could still force a move through.

Bayern Munich could be the smarter move. Jadon Sancho has shown how young English kids can prosper in the Bundesliga.

While Bayern are about to hit a major transition period with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery dropping out the could.

Hudson-Odoi could fill one of those flanks positions at the Allianz Arena.

And Liverpool? Klopp could be viewing Hudson-Odoi as a future winger at Anfield.

The Chelsea winger would offer an alternative to mix up the Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Frimino triumvirate.
