Bayern defender linked with Blues
Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is wanted by Bayern Munich, while the Blues are being linked with Mats Hummels.
18-year-old Hudson-Odoi is only on the fringes of the Blues' first team and may well be allowed to leave in the winter window if a good offer comes in.
The England Under-19 ace has already been linked with Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund, who were reportedly prepared to offer USA international Christian Pulisic as part of a swap deal for the forward.
The Bavarians might try to scupper that potential transfer as they are set to offer a straight cash deal in the region of £13million, according to press reports.
Hudson-Odoi, who came though Chelsea's academy, is rated highly and may well follow in the footsteps of youngsters such as Reiss Nelson and Jadon Sancho, who have swapped England for Germany and flourished.
Meanwhile, reports are also rife suggesting that Chelsea are interested in Bayern central defender Hummels, who could be allowed to leave for a £30million fee.
