Chelsea confident in keeping Hudson-Odoi amid Bayern links

Paper Round Hudson Odoi set for new Chelsea deal

Chelsea believe they are on course to tie Callum Hudson-Odoi to a new contract, according to the Daily Mirror.

Bayern saw a £35 million ($44m) offer for Hudson-Odoi rejected by Chelsea and have retained an interest in the teenage winger.

Die Roten attempted to lure the 18-year-old to Bavaria in January, with the player going so far as to hand in a transfer request to push a move through, but the Blues held firm and refused to sanction the move.

He could now earn as much as £100,000 a week in his new contract after his value skyrocketed following his impressive performances for Chelsea, in addition to winning his first caps for England.

The London-born wonderkid did not make his first Premier League start for Chelsea until after he had made his England debut against Czech Republic in March.

Should he manage it, it would be arguably one of the greatest feats of his sensational career. Rafael Nadal sprinted past Kei Nishikori in a straight-set win.

Hudson-Odoi is now nursing an injury and therefore was unable to play any part in his side's 4-1 Europa League final win over Arsenal, a competition he had come familiar with this season after netting four times in nine outings for the Blues.

With Eden Hazard nearly certain to leave for Real Madrid, and a transfer ban now inflicted on the Blues, retaining Hudson-Odoi's services is huge.

While Bayern are still keen to sign Hudson-Odoi, they have turned to other targets as they look for replacements for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Unfortunately for Hudson-Odoi, his season ended early when he suffered an ACL injury.

One of the reasons for waiting until the Hazard deal completes, is that Hudson-Odoi may inherit the Chelsea #10 shirt.
