Bayern Munich have made a fourth bid of £35million for Callum Hudson-Odoi, matching Chelsea’s required asking price.
The Bundesliga champions are very keen to sign the teenage forward, who is struggling for first team opportunities at Stamford Bridge.
Hudson-Odoi has impressed whenever he has featured for Chelsea this season, including assists for both goals in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

However he is not a regular starter for Chelsea and with Christian Pulisic set to arrive from Borussia Dortmund next summer, his chances look likely to become even more scarce.
Bayern could offer a clearer route to first team action at the highest level, similar to Jadon Sancho, who has flourished at Dortmund after leaving Manchester City.
They had made three previous offers for the 18-year-old forward, worth up to £30m. Hudson-Odoi is keen on a move to Bavaria as he looks for more action.
Manager Maurizio Sarri however is ready to give Hudson-Odoi regular first-team football to keep him from Bayern’s clutches.

‘He is ready (to play more) I think. Of course we have very important players in the same position,’ said Sarri.
‘I can play with only two wingers I think but now he is ready. He can play, of course, some time he will be on the bench but same as Willian and Pedro.
‘I can start to consider him on the same level. I don’t think he should go to Germany because he is an English player. He is very young, he has the future and I think that he has a very great future here in England with the national team and with Chelsea. To stay here is better for him.’
