Bayern Munich Coach Confirms Interest In Callum Hudson-Odoi
Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac has confirmed that his club are following the progress of Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi. Hudson-Odoi, the son of former Hearts of Oak Ghanaian midfielder Bismark Odoi, is considered one of the most talented youngsters currently on the books at Stamford Bridge.
An Under-17 World Cup winner with England in 2017, he has found first-team football hard to come by with the Blues, making just seven appearances for the Blues this season. It is reported that Bayern have now made a £30 million ($37.5m) offer for the teenager’s services.
And Kovac admitted that Hudson-Odoi was in the club’s sights.
“[Hudson-Odoi] is from the same year as [Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon] Sancho, which was very successful,” the Bayern coach explained to reporters on Saturday.
“It is completely normal that we are aware of and are following the player. For if and when something will happen you will have to ask Brazzo (Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic).”
The 18-year-old, yesterday, provided two assists as Chelsea progressed to FA Cup fourth round with victory over Nottingham Forest.
