LONDON, NETRALNEWS.COM  - Chelsea's young player Callum Hudson-Odoi has been sought after by many top clubs this summer. Two Germany giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are in the queue to get the signature of one of the brightest young players in the Premier League.

Bayern has already submitted a bid to Chelsea in January. Unfortunately, their first offer was immediately rejected outright because they only offered 35 million pounds (around Rp. 653.2 billion).

To bring Hudson-Odoi Bayern plans to make another offer at the end of the season, even though Chelsea have no intention of releasing the player.

However, Bayern are now getting rivals from Dortmund, who can take advantage of Hudson-Odoi's teammate in the England national team, Jadon Sancho to persuade the Chelsea player to come to Germany.

Sancho has made 26 Bundesliga matches for Dortmund, while Hudson-Odoi is still awaiting his first match in the English Premier League.

Interestingly, Chelsea have brought in Christian Pulisic, who will arrive in the summer, with a value of 58 million pounds (around Rp1.08 trillion) from Dortmund and Manchester United has reportedly been ready to spend 100 million pounds for Sancho.

Bayern are still in the leading position to bring in Hudson-Odoi if he leaves Chelsea in the summer, but Dortmund began to increase his interest in the England national team player.

Although rarely getting the chance to play in the senior Chelsea team, Hudson-Odoi is still called by Gareth Southgate's England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

The 18-year-old's current contract will expire at the end of the season, but that does not mean Chelsea will always receive a number of transfer offers.

The Blues are willing to offer Hudson-Odoi a new contract worth 70,000 pounds (around IDR 1.03 billion) per week in January and are likely to re-submit a bigger bid at the end of the season.
