Bayern Munich increase bid for Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi to £35m

The possibility of 18-year-old winger Callum Hudson-Odoi also leaving the club was raised last week by Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola, who said Bayern Munich was "very interested" in the highly rated teenager.

This situation has indeed alerted the big clubs of Europe, mainly Bayern Munich, who have reportedly placed three bids on the table for the youngster's signature.

Stephen Warnock told 5Live: "I think what's really interesting about this story, the way it's headed at the moment, is when you listen to Sarri talk about him, he says 'I haven't spoken to the player because it is not my issue'".

The Ligue 1 club, now being coached by Fabregas' former Arsenal team mate Thierry Henry, are apparently not willing to pay what Chelsea are asking for a player whose contract ends in June this year.

The Englishman proved his effectiveness against Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon, providing two superb assists for Alvaro Morata in a man of the match display. "I don't want as very important player as Cesc not happy".

"I think moving to Bayern Munich would be beneficial for him because I think this is just a phase with Maurizio Sarri and I do not believe he is going to be consistently playing".

Hudson-Odoi's potential can turn him into one of the very best in England, if not Europe.

Hudson-Odoi may have spent a lot of this Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Tottenham at Wembley marginalised and living on restricted service but there was enough on offer in his 79-minute appearance to understand what all the fuss is about. According to reports in the English press, the London club have asked for 10 million euros for the 31-year-old - a figure well below his current market value of 25 million euros.
