Breaking news this evening as Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has handed in a transfer request, this according to Sky Sports.
The 18-year-old has been the subject of four offers from German giants Bayern Munich, the most recent of which being £35m. It is understood the transfer request has been submitted in order to force through a move to the Bundesliga Champions.
The winger has failed to see much game time as he would like this season but Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has implemented Hudson-Odoi into the squad more frequently since the turn of the year.
The West London club are keen to keep the youngster and have a 5-year contract ready for him to sign. However, with the success of fellow English wonderkids Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson in Germany, Hudson-Odoi has understandably had his head turned in recent weeks.
Sarri is a big fan of the winger and has praised him in press conferences with the hope it would convince Hudson-Odoi to remain in the blue of Chelsea. The Italian boss has said he now views him ‘on the same level’ as regular starters Willian and Pedro.
It is a story that will rumble on and create headlines right up until the transfer deadline next Thursday, but where will the youngster be playing his football once February arrives?
