Chelsea are willing to include Callum Hudson-Odoi in any potential deal for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman
Regarded as one of the very best young wingers in the game, Hudson-Odoi has not been able to live upto the expectations that many have placed on his head, and has really struggled to make an impact under the guidance of Thomas Tuchel.
That has led to reports in the media which have claimed that he is now ready to leave the club this transfer window, and seek a fresh challenge, and a club that will give him more game time and minutes
And according to L’Equipe we are willing to let him depart Stamford Bridge and join Bayern Munich, in hope that they can get Coman in return
The clubwould like to negotiate a player-plus-cash agreement that could allow Bayern to reinvest in another potential new signing in addition to landing long-term target Hudson-Odoi.
The Englishman is not in Thomas Tuchel’s plans at the Bridge for next season, and the head coach has long been an admirer of Coman, who Bayern are valuing at €90 million (£77m/$106m).
Coman is very happy at the German club and has constantly tried to play down all the speculation regarding his future and a possible future move, but with Covid hitting all the big clubs hard, there has been some suggestion that the German may be open to the idea of letting him leave.
Look, if the reports are true and we are actually interested in a transfer deal for Coman, he would be a very good signing for the club. But why not save a bit of money and give Odoi more of a chance?
He does have the talent to be a star at the club, he just needs more than 20 minutes here or thirty minutes there.
