Bayern Munich are reportedly willing to try to lure winger Callum Hudson-Odoi away from Chelsea again.
The Bundesliga giants were unsuccessful in their hunt for the 20-year-old in 2019 when he eventually sat down and signed a new five-year deal worth £180,000 a week.
But Bayern have not given up hope and are ready to make another attempt to sign Hudson-Odoi, according to The times.
Bayern Munich reportedly wants to try again to lure Callum Hudson-Odoi away from Chelsea
According to the report, the Blues are open to bids for the wideman this summer, having dismissed Bayern’s claims in recent years.
The German champions rekindled their interest in Hudson-Odoi last year when Chelsea turned down a loan offer with a £70m option to buy.
The England international, who this week hinted at a possible move to represent Ghana at international level in the future, remained at Stamford Bridge and made 37 appearances in all competitions last season.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel limited the England winger’s playing time in the run-up
He scored five goals and provided five assists in those games, as Thomas Tuchel limited his playing time in the run-up.
Hudson-Odoi was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s last two Premier League games, playing just 14 minutes into the FA Cup final defeat to Leicester and staying on the bench in their win over Manchester City in the Champions League final. He last played in European competition in the last-16 draw against Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea have multiple attacking options at their disposal with players such as Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech.
While Sports post revealed on Monday that the Blues have opened talks about a transfer for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
