Chelsea refuse to comment on winger rumours
Callum Hudson-Odoi is reported to have handed in a transfer request, but Chelsea have declined to comment on the rumours.
Hudson-Odoi has been linked with a big-money move to Bayern Munich, who have made no secret of their admiration for the England youth international.
Now, with the winter transfer window closing on Thursday, Hudson-Odoi has reportedly declared his desire to move, with Chelsea refusing to comment when quizzed about the reports.
He has 18 months remaining on his contract and Chelsea could now opt to cash in or keep Hudson-Odoi until the end of the season in an effort to persuade him to change his mind and sign a new deal.
Chelsea have repeatedly stated their wish to keep Hudson-Odoi, an under-17 World Cup winner with England in 2017, but are now faced with a tough decision.
Hudson-Odoi might have been expected to start in Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Sheffield Wednesday, but Saturday night's revelation could change that.
