Chelsea Speed Up Talks Over Gonzalo Higuain Swoop


Bayern are not keen on such a deal, but with Hudson-Odoi refusing to commit his future to Chelsea a decision may have to be made.

Bayern have made several bids for the 18-year-old England youth global since the transfer window opened, with their latest bid reported to be £35 million.

Chelsea have reportedly accepted a bid of around £35million from Bayern for Hudson-Odoi and the 18-year-old forward is seriously considering the move after witnessing Jadon Sancho's meteoric rise in Germany.

But one star that has been heavily linked with a move away is Hudson-Odoi, with Bayern Munich aggressively pursuing the 18-year-old. "My opinion is important for the club, but I can not tell you my opinion". I am very happy with the player, he is improving a lot.

Sarri said he was not aware of any approach to Willian, but added: "Of course [I don't want to lose him] because he is really very important".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has spoken of the club's plan in the winter transfer market.

The balance sheet "will be substantially smaller than it is now", though bigger than it was before the crisis, Powell said. At the same time, Powell acknowledged that financial markets are expressing concern about risks.

"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club". "I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion", he said. Let's see what happens.

Sarri has handed Hudson-Odoi a place in his starting line-up for Chelsea's past two matches - Tuesday's League Cup semi-final loss to Tottenham Hotspur and the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest last weekend in which the teenager set up both of Alvaro Morata's goals.

He told beIN Sports: "He is one of the best (young players) in Europe". First, you have to take the big step to achieve it.

Eden Hazard will continue in his unfamiliar "false 9" position while Barcelona target Willian gets another opportunity to prove his doubters wrong.

Hudson-Odoi remains odds-on to make the move to Bayern with Betway listing him at 4/11 to seal the deal.

"The Chelsea academy graduate is now just 4/5 to join the German champions during this transfer window, with a stay at Stamford Bridge priced at even-money".
