German giants Bayern Munich have launched a bid for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
According to the Daily Mail, Die Roten have tabled a £13million offer for the 18-year-old ahead of the January transfer window.
However, reports suggest that Bayern are not the only German club monitoring Hudson-Odoi, with Borussia Dortmund credited with an interest, as well as other Bundesliga sides.
Hudson-Odoi is highly rated at Chelsea and viewed as one of the best talents to emerge from the club’s academy in recent years.
Chelsea, it is understood, would look to insert a buy-back clause into any deal that would see Hudson-Odoi leave permanently.
Hudson-Odoi made his debut for Chelsea in January 2018 when he came on as a substitute in an FA Cup over Newcastle. He made three more substitute appearances under Antonio Conte, including one in the Premier League against Bournemouth.
He made his first Premier League appearance of the season on Wednesday against Watford when he replaced Pedro in the 43rd minute, but he was withdrawn late in the game after suffering a hamstring injury.
He has featured four times in the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri, starting twice.
