Chelsea have rejected another approach from Bayern Munich for Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Sky Germany are reporting the latest bid to be £22.5 million (€25m), significantly less than the £35m the Bundesliga club were offering Chelsea in January.
The report suggests that with just one year remaining on his contract at Chelsea, Bayern Munich are testing the Premier League club’s resolve with a contract extension yet to be signed.
Hudson-Odoi would be available to speak to foreign clubs in January and will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement.
Guardian journalist Ed Aarons also notes that Bayern Munich are likely to come back with an improved offer for the 18-year-old in the coming weeks.
