Bayern Munich line up new bid for Chelsea FC attacker – report
Bayern Munich are lining up a fresh bid to try and sign Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea FC, according to reports
Bayern Munich are not prepared to give up their interest in signing Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea FC and are planning a new bid for the teenager, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the German club are expected to make a new £45m bid to sign the 18-year-old this week, which is £10m more than the last offer they made in January.
Hudson-Odoi’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a big source of speculation this summer, mainly because his current contract at the club is due to expire at the end of next season.
It remains to be seen whether Frank Lampard’s arrival at Chelsea FC as manager will be enough to help convince Hudson-Odoi to sign a new deal with the Blues.
According to the same story, Bayern are determined to make Hudson-Odoi the centre of their rebuilding project at the club following the departures of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
The England international is currently recovering from Achilles surgery and is on course to miss the start of the season with Chelsea FC under new boss Lampard.
The teenager struggled to hold down a regular spot in the Blues first team last season under Maurizio Sarri, but he earned more playing time in the second half of the campaign before suffering his injury.
