Juventus ‘to rival Bayern Munich for Callum Hudson-Odoi’

Juventus are reportedly planning to launch a last-minute raid to snatch Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi from under the noses of Bayern Munich.
The 18-year-old is the subject of a bid north of £30m from Bayern, despite having just three substitute appearances to his name in the Premier League.

Hudson-Odoi’s stock has risen over the past six months thanks to some impressive pre-season performances, as well as chipping in with three assists and a goal in his five cup outings this term.

Chelsea have so far refused to sell the England Under-19s international to Bayern, but The Mirror claims that the Blues now face further competition to keep hold of the teenage forward as Juventus are also preparing a bid.

The report indicates that Hudson-Odoi’s representatives have already held talks with Juve, though the Wandsworth-born ace would prefer to join the German champions if he is given the choice.

Juventus are also understood to be on the verge of snapping up Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal on a free contract.
