Chelsea 'want £22.5m for Callum Hudson-Odoi'

The United States midfielder is considered as one of the top youngsters in the world and he will become the most expensive American player if he makes the move to Stamford Bridge.

Former Barcelona star Pedro was withdrawn just before half time during Chelsea's 1-2 win away at Watford on Boxing Day, with the Spaniard seen to have suffered a hamstring injury.

Whether Bayern would be interested in pursuing a permanent or loan deal remains to be seen, although the precedent for prospects seems to be being set for Hudson-Odoi - use him, or lose him.

Chelsea have told Bayern that they value the England U19 worldwide at closer to £40m.
