“We’re interested in him” Chelsea boss confirm imminent deal for another winger

Bayern Munich are strongly keen on signing star Callum Hudson-Odoi, however Chelsea want to hold on to the 18-year-old.

Hudson-Odoi has had fewer appearances under Maurizio Sarri this term, and is said be considering a move away from Chelsea.

A string of German outfits are waiting in the corner to seize him and Bayern have been the closest to nailing a deal that could lure him out of Chelsea.

But assistant manager Gianfranco Zola has told the 18-year-old he has a chance to kickstart a bright career at Chelsea despite strong interests from Bayern.

Bayern sweetened the kitty stumping an extra 10 million pounds with bonuses and add-ons in a bid to bait Hudson-Odoi into signing a contract with them.

Chelsea also have a contract by the side too, as they remain reluctant to release the England international, says Zola.

“It’s about patience. I believe he has a bright future with us, but he will have to learn that right now for him it’s important to get better and better every day.

“I know Bayern is very interested in him, but we’re interested in him as well.” Said Zola.

Chelsea also have a contract by the side too, as they remain reluctant to release the England international, says Zola.

“We’ve proposed a contract for quite a while, so we’re waiting. We certainly value him as a player.”

“I know he hasn’t played probably as much as he wanted, but this is down to the quality of the players in front of him.”
