As per reports from the Daily Mail, Bayern Munich will submit a new €50m bid to prize Callum Hudson-Odoi away from Chelsea FC.
The 18-year-old has been on the Bavarians’ radar for quite some time as they look to fill the gaps left by Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben.
The latest bid represents an €11m increase over the German champions’ last bid.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard recently quoted his desire to keep Hudson-Odoi at the Stamford Bridge.
“I have seen Callum come through and he is a fantastic talent. We all know that and I will speak to him and I want him to stay. I know the club want him to stay and for me, he is going to be central for us on the pitch and that is the opportunity that is really in front of him now, certainly from where I am sitting. So that is something I will speak to him about and I hope he stays.”
“When I say he is going to be central to it, there are things as a young player that he will want to improve and there are things through natural development that will improve, so I am not going to say things that are pie in the sky but with his talent, he can be central to this team, he can be central to England, so I am going to say I want to work with him, I want to drive him forward and I want to improve him as a player. He can show, right here at Chelsea, the team he came through the Academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player because I truly believe that.”
