Bayern Munich raise offer for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi to £35m

Bayern Munich clearly want the Englishman and have already had three bids turned down for the teenager in the January transfer window, and it's only January 8th.

Maurizio Sarri does not think joining Bayern Munich would be a good move for transfer-linked Callum Hudson-Odoi, convinced he is best served by staying at Chelsea.

Chelsea fans have reacted to Callum Hudson-Odoi's inclusion in the starting line-up against Tottenham on Tuesday night.

Sky Sports are reporting that the German Giants have tabled a fourth bid of £35 million for the England U19 worldwide, which includes no buy back option - something fellow Bundesliga side RB Leipzig had been prepared to include in any deal.

Sarri has given assurances to Hudson-Odoi that he will be getting more opportunities before the end of the season, and with Willian struggling to make any impact on Chelsea's flank, that promise is easier to deliver. He wants the move to Bayern just as much as Bayern want him. One of the best players playing in England was him, everyone knows that. All that is left now is for Chelsea to accept Bayern's new and improved offer. That, however, no longer seems a possibility - even with Muaricio Sarri's recent comments.

Hudson-Odoi has refused to discuss a new contract with Chelsea, having been offered a five-year deal last summer.

If Bayern Munich were interested in allowing the player to remain at Stamford Bridge for the next six months, though, it is unlikely they would have pushed so hard to sign him in January.

The London-born forward featured in both of their fixtures against BATE Borisov in the Europa League group stage before Hudson-Odoi scored his first Chelsea FC goal in a 4-0 win over PAOK in November.
