Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Bayern Munich.
Hudson-Odoi made an impression with the Chelsea senior squad during pre-season, but head coach Maurizio Sarri has been reluctant to hand minutes to the teenager during the opening months of the campaign.
That has allegedly resulted in Championship clubs showing an interest in taking Hudson-Odoi on loan during the January window, but according to The Mirror, Bayern are also monitoring the situation.
The German giants have witnessed their Bundesliga rivals use English youngsters in first-team action over the past year, with Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson making an impact at Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim respectively.
Bayern are now considering whether to offer Hudson-Odoi a similar route, with the 18-year-old currently having less than two years remaining on his contract.
Chelsea are said to be attempting to agree fresh terms with the academy graduate.
