Bayern Munich have revived their interest in landing Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea, according to the latest reports in Germany.
In January 2019, the UCL holders submitted multiple offers to the Blues for the 19-year-old, including an offer of £35 million.
But Chelsea turned down Die Roten’s advances and instead Hudson-Odoi signed a fresh five-year contract in September.
Bayern are keen to strengthen their attacking options following Ivan Perisic’s departure this transfer window.
And according to Sky Germany, the German champions have contacted Callum’s representatives once again to discuss a potential move.
The report claims that Die Roten are interested in a loan deal which includes a purchase variant, however they haven’t yet made an official approach to Chelsea.
RB Leipzig are also keen on signing Hudson-Odoi but would not be able to afford the attacker’s £120,000-a-week salary.
Hudson-Odoi came off the bench in the Blues’ Premier League opener on Monday evening as Frank Lampard’s outfit sealed a 3-1 victory over Brighton.
Last season, the winger netted three goals and registered six assists in 33 games for Chelsea.
And the 19-year-old faces increased competition for a place in Frank’s starting line-up following the arrivals of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech this summer.
Lampard, however, is adamant that the club’s new signings should only be seen as a positive for stars who are already at Stamford Bridge.
‘The challenge goes to the players who want to get into the team. And that’s how you generate an uplift in levels among the squad,’ he told NBC Sports.
‘You bring in players who hopefully bring the general level up as opposed to anyone who may take it as a negative and think, ‘that’s me done’. No, everyone has to rise and try to fight for their place in the team.’
