According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi wants to be allowed to join Bayern Munich in a £35m deal.

Chelsea and Bayern Munich have reportedly agreed to terms for the transfer of Callum Hudson-Odoi, including buy-back and sell-on clauses.

The Daily Mail now reports that the 18-year-old is eager to join the German Champions, citing his need for playing time.

With Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben leaving Bayern at the end of the season, Hudson-Odoi wants to be part of the rebuilding process at the Allianz Arena.

The Bundesliga Champions have pursued the youngster relentlessly in the January window and look to have finally captured their target.

Chelsea initially rejected three bids from Bayern, but it was reported that the German club’s refusal to include a buy-back clause was hindering the deal.

Sarri has urged the player to have patience in order to get playing time and the West London club is still keen on keeping him and would like him to sign a new contract as his current deal runs out in 2020.

The Blues were willing to offer him a new five-year deal, but it seems the player has made up his mind to leave.
