Bayern Munich have a plan to convince Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign in January


The future of Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is a story that's quickly beginning to dominate the transfer market. 

The 18-year-old has been impressing so far this season, after making a number of appearances in the Europa League. 

More recently, he came on as a sub in Chelsea's win against Watford in the Premier League, before starting his first domestic game last weekend. 

Hudson-Odoi was one of four youngsters who featured against Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup, and he also picked up a Man of the Match award for his two assists. 

Naturally, after starting to make more of an impact at Chelsea, the 18-year-old is beginning to attract attention from other clubs - and another European giant has been sniffing around. 

It's been reported that Bayern Munich have made at least one bid for Hudson-Odoi, with the west London club turning down an offer of more than £20 million earlier this month. 


According to Sky Sports, the club value their starlet closer to £40 million and are very reluctant to let him go in January. 

In fact, on Monday afternoon, boss Maurizio Sarri said that he believes Hudson-Odoi is ready to start in the Premier League, and that he sees the youngster as an important player. 


Chelsea fans will be hoping that Sarri's words will be enough to convince the young Englishman to stay.

However, according to the latest reports, the German club are looking to tempt Hudson-Odoi away - and will hope to do so by offering him an extra incentive.   


According to The Sun, Bayern are willing to offer Chelsea's winger their number 10 shirt, which will likely be vacated by Arjen Robben this summer. 


The Dutchman is a Bundesliga legend - and offering Hudson-Odoi his shirt once he moves on shows just how highly Bayern rate the teenager.

But, only time will tell if that gesture - and the reported £30 million offer, will be enough to tempt one of Chelsea's brightest young stars away.
