Bayern Munich have made a new bid to bring Callum Hudson-Odoi to the Bundesliga, six months after first attempting to land the player in January.
The German champions have reportedly made a fourth official bid for the 18-year-old forward worth £22.5 million, according to Sky Sports News. Chelsea have rejected the bid but with CHO’s contract due to expire at the end of next season, the race is on to secure the young baller’s signature between both sides.
After a slow start in terms of getting first team minutes, 2018/19 was a breakthrough season for Hudson-Odoi and ended with him scoring five goals in 24 first team appearances, also claiming his first trophy in senior football with the Europa League.

Despite claims that he’s keen to take on Eden Hazard’s now vacant number 10 shirt next season at Stamford Bridge, Sky Sports News report that he’s no closer to signing a new deal with Chelsea – and as things stand, he could sign an agreement to join a new club for free in January 2020.
Hudson-Odoi is currently recovering from an achilles injury sustained in April and is working towards full fitness for the start of the new season.
The world knows just how good this young baller can be.
