Chelsea have told German giants Bayern Munich that they will have to put forward a big-money offer if they are to sign talented youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi.
According to Mirror Football, the Bavarians have been told that they will have to part with a whopping £40m in order to sign Chelsea’s teenage sensation.
According to Sky Sports Germany’s Max Bielefeld the West London club rejected a bid worth £20m for the England youth international.
The talented winger is understood to have been promised first-team football under Maurizio Sarri and after only being handed six chances to impress this season the youngster could make a move for the exit door at Stamford Bridge.
Now could be the best time for Premier League talents to ply their trade abroad, Hudson-Odoi’s former England youth teammate Jadon Sancho has set the Bundesliga alight after ditching Manchester City in a shock move.
Arsenal attacker Reiss Nelson also followed Sancho’s footsteps by joining Hoffenheim on loan this summer and their decisions are certainly paying off. The pair have been fast-tracked through the England setup; on one hand Sancho has worked his way up to the Senior team whereas Nelson’s impressive performances earned him a call-up to the Under-21s.
With rumours intensifying over Hudson-Odoi’s future this could be the catalyst that leads to Maurizio Sarri finally giving the youngster the chance he deserves to shine for the Blues.
