Thursday's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Chelsea on Thursday, September 24.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Chelsea eye possible reinforcements.

The Blues failed to bring in a single player during the January window, despite seeing their transfer ban cut short by FIFA, but have already been busy this summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Thursday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:

Bayern Munich players 'confident of Callum Hudson-Odoi arrival'

Members of the Bayern Munich squad are reportedly expecting Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to move to the Allianz Arena.

The England international was handed a start on Wednesday evening as Chelsea thrashed Barnsley by a 6-0 scoreline in the EFL Cup third round.

However, outings in the first XI have been a rarity for the academy graduate over the past 12 months, leading to suggestions that he may be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge.

According to The Telegraph, several players in the Bayern squad feel that the 19-year-old will make the switch to the Bundesliga in the coming weeks.

Frank Lampard may be more willing to allow Hudson-Odoi to go out on loan rather than give the green light to a sale.

The attacker still has four years remaining on his contract at the West Londoners.

Antonio Rudiger 'set to leave Chelsea before transfer deadline'

Antonio Rudiger will reportedly leave Chelsea before the end of this summer's transfer window.

The Germany international was on the bench for his side's 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on September 14 but was not included in the clash with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

After the 2-0 defeat to the Reds, head coach Frank Lampard revealed that the 27-year-old was not injured and had simply not been selected due to Chelsea's options in central defence.

According to The Telegraph, Rudiger will also not feature against Barnsley in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night and is expected to leave Stamford Bridge before the transfer deadline at the start of October.

The defender, who has been capped on 31 occasions by the German national team, joined Chelsea from Roma in 2017.

He has made 115 appearances for the London club in all competitions but is likely to fall further down the pecking order once summer arrival Thiago Silva overcomes his fitness issues.
