?Callum Hudson-Odoi remains a target for Bayern Munich this summer, with various reports emerging from Gernany that the winger is still keeping his options open this transfer window.
Die Roten attempted to lure the 18-year-old to Bavaria in January, with the player going so far as to hand in a transfer request to push a move through, but the Blues held firm and refused to sanction the move.
With Eden Hazard’s inevitable switch to Real Madrid on the horizon, it is thought Hudson-Odoi will play a more prominent role in the side, due also to the fact ?Chelsea are staring down the barrel of a potential two-window transfer ban.
However, reports out of Germany now claim that forward is still not totally convinced of remaining at Stamford Bridge, despite the likelihood of further first-team opportunities.
Sport Bild reporter Christian Falk rubbish suggestions from Evening Standard writer ?Simon Johnson that negotiations between Hudson-Odoi and the club had reached a breakthrough, with the youngster expected to sign a five-year-deal in west London ‘in the next few weeks’.
Citing the article, ?Falk refuted such suggestions, simply stating they were ‘not true’ and that a move to ?Bayern ‘is still on option’ for the breakthrough Chelsea starlet.
Falk’s statements were echoed by Sky Sports Germany reporter ?Torben Hoffman, who also backed up the idea that Johnson’s revelation had jumped the gun somewhat, and that a move to the Bundesliga champions was far from dead and buried.
Hudson-Odoi is currently nursing an injury and therefore was unable to play any part in his side’s 4-1 Europa League final win over Arsenal, a competition he had come familiar with this season after netting four times in nine outings for the Blues.
