Chelsea face fresh transfer blow as club set to try again for unsettled star

Posted by

Chelsea are reportedly facing a fresh blow to their hopes of keeping Callum Hudson-Odoi as Bayern Munich are expected to try again for a transfer in the summer.

The England youth international has shone in limited appearances at Stamford Bridge this season, looking one of the most exciting young players in the country.

However, Chelsea aren’t exactly renowned for promoting players from their academy, and have ended up losing a lot of top young talent in recent years, such as the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Mohamed Salah.

Hudson-Odoi could be the latest as the Daily Mail claim Bayern are poised to try again to sign the 18-year-old in the summer after being linked with a £35million move for him in January.

Having handed in a transfer request, according to the Mail, it seems likely Hudson-Odoi could still be keen on a summer exit from Chelsea unless there’s a big change to his situation.

Maurizio Sarri could surely do with playing this talented young forward more often soon, especially as Eden Hazard is heading towards the final year of his contract with Chelsea.
