Chelsea transfer news: Blues starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi wanted by Bayern Munich in January window

Callum Hudson-Odoi is wanted by Bayern Munich while Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the Chelsea winger.

The 18-year-old has struggled for playing time under Maurizio Sarri and despite an impressive pre-season, in which he started in the Community Shield, he has only made five appearances this term.

His most recent appearance, his first in the Premier League, was as a 43rd minute substitute for Pedro in the 2-1 Boxing Day win at Watford, only to then be replaced himself five minutes before the end, which was said to be because of a hamstring issue.

Bayern are now believed to be preparing a £13m bid for Hudson-Odoi when the January window opens.

Should he make the switch, Chelsea would look to insert a buy-back clause into any deal.

Hudson-Odoi made his first-team debut for the Blues in a 3-0 FA Cup win over Newcastle United in January.

A number of young players have flourished in the Bundesliga in recent years.

Jadon Sancho has been excellent for Borussia Dortmund after leaving Manchester City, earning his first England call-up and winning his first cap against Croatia.
