• Callum Hudson-Odoi's move to Bayern Munich may happen before Oct. 5
  • Der FCB wants to sign Hudson-Odoi on a loan deal, a report said
  • Another report said Hudson-Odoi is open to a move to Bayern

Bayern Munich has not given up its pursuit of Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi, a report said. The 19-year-old has fallen down the ranks, and an agreement could be sealed soon.

German outlet Bild reported that Der FCB is in discussions with Chelsea to sign Hudson-Odoi on a loan deal as the transfer deadline rapidly approaches. Bayern has kept tabs on the English winger, someone that sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has wanted to bring to his side. If negotiations go well, a deal could be sealed in the coming days, per Bild.

Bayern boss Hansi Flick is reportedly hoping to bring in another winger to ease the burden of Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman.

However, The Athletic U.K.'s Simon Johnson reported on Thursday, citing an unnamed source, that Hudson-Odoi is unlikely to leave this transfer window.

"While UEFA take another time out from the draw, I’ve been assured that unless there is a drastic late change in the window, Hudson-Odoi will be staying at #CFC," Johnson, who covers Chelsea news for The Athletic U.K., tweeted.

Hudson-Odoi has found himself struggling to get ample playing time after the Blues took in new players such as Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. If he stays on, the future is not looking bright for the 19-year-old, with his playing time likely to be limited.

Before the latest push, Bayern had other targets in mind. They were Thomas Lemar and Andrej Kramaric from Atletico Madrid and Hoffenheim, respectively. Unfortunately, both players were too expensive for Der FCB.

Sky Germany reported that the 19-year-old is also interested in moving to Bayern Munich. According to the report, Hudson-Odoi feels that the German club trusts his abilities. The move also makes sense considering he could get the playing time he is not getting from the Blues.

Bayern showed interest in Hudson-Odoi in January last year but didn't pursue him after he injured his Achilles tendon in August 2019.

Hudson-Odoi would be the latest player to leave Stamford Bridge if a deal with Bayern is sealed. After signing seven players this transfer window, the Blues will see a lot of players leaving. The last one to do so is Ross Barkley, who is now with Aston Villa on a season-long loan.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso are other players expected to leave before the transfer deadline.
