Chelsea reject Bayern loan bid for Hudson-Odoi that included £70m option to buy


Callum Hudson-Odoi Chelsea 2020-21

Chelsea have rejected an audacious bid from Bayern Munich for wingerCallum Hudson-Odoi, Goal can confirm.

The German giants are willing to include an obligation to buy as they attempt to convince Chelsea to offload the 19-year-old, with Bayern having now made their third approach for the player in the last four transfer windows.

The latest offer dwarfs the last approachfrom the Champions League winners some 20 months ago, witha £35m ($44m) bid rejected at the time asHudson-Odoi looked to leave having become frustrated at a lack of first-team football.

That was at a time when Maurizio Sarri was in charge, although Hudson-Odoi has again struggled for regular first-team football under new manager Frank Lampard.

Indeed, Bayern made their interest in Hudson-Odoi public during Chelsea's match against Crystal Palace -a game that the England wingerstarted -with Hansi Flick confirming the Bavarians were still keen on signing him.

Reacting to that, Lampard insisted that he wants the player to remain at Stamford Bridge but wasn't able to confirm he would definitely be staying up.

"I think Callum's performance, particularly in the second half when he got more aggressive, he showed ability and pace. Callum is absolutely part of our plans here," the Blues boss said after his side's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.

"There is no definitive answer on Hudson-Odoi's future, we will know by Monday whether there is. Callum is our player, what Callum wants comes into consideration, it has to work for us."

Chelsea are in control of the situation despite theapproach from the European champions, with the youngster having signed a new five-year deal last year.

Lampard did leave out several senior stars in the win over Palace, including Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Antonio Rudiger.

All four could leave Chelsea as they look to trim their squadafter makingsix signings this summer, at a cost totalling around £220m ($275m).

Rudiger is interestingTottenham, West Ham, AC Milan, Interand Paris Saint-Germain, whileAlonso and Emerson are both being targeted by Inter.
