£40m star hands in transfer request following Liverpool transfer talks

Liverpool will no doubt be on alert after the news that Callum Hudson-Odoi has handed in a transfer request at Chelsea following recent talks with the Reds.

According to Goal, the 18-year-old has made it clear he wants to leave Stamford Bridge, though they state he’s pushing for a move to Bayern Munich.

This comes as the Daily Mail also claim Bayern could be ready to pay as much as £40million for Hudson-Odoi, who looks a huge talent and a player with a big future.

Liverpool may be in contention as well, however, with Bild recently claiming the England youth international’s rep had held talks with the Merseyside giants.

Hudson-Odoi fits the bill in terms of the type of young, technically gifted player Liverpool tend to go after under Jurgen Klopp, who could also do with more depth up front.

LFC have had mixed success in their recent transfer dealings with Chelsea, raiding Daniel Sturridge from them when he was still quite young and not playing much, and doing the same last season with Dominic Solanke.

Hudson-Odoi, however, looks like he could be well worth battling for as he seems set on leaving CFC some time soon.

Still, one imagines the Blues won’t want to sell to a Premier League rival if they do end up losing this highly-rated youngster.
