Bayern Munich’s chase of Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi doesn’t look to be wavering any time soon with the club putting in a fifth bid to try and secure the services of the highly-rated youngster. The news has left many supporters at Stamford Bridge becoming quite annoyed with the winger yet to sign a new contract at the club.

Hudson-Odoi is at risk of tarnishing his reputation with the Chelsea fanbase should this saga go on any longer. The Daily Mail report that the Bundesliga giants are preparing to offer a mega £45m as they refuse to give up on finding a replacement for Arjen Robben. The fee is an increase of £10m on what they offered the West London club in January yet it’s thought that new boss Frank Lampard is eager to include the starlet as an integral part of his plans next season.

The 18-year-old only has one year to run on his current contract and would be free to talk to Bayern in January if the situation hasn’t changed by then. Hudson-Odoi only featured 24 times for Chelsea last time averaging 48 minutes per game as he often found himself coming on as a substitute – which may be why the England international is stalling on a new contract.

Though with a new manager at the helm – one that has been proven to trusting young talent, the signing of an extension could just be a formality with the club visiting a number of different countries during this pre-season.
