Chelsea preparing swap deal for 25-year-old French winger

By | July 22, 2021

Chelsea are reportedly planning to make a swap deal with German giants, Bayern Munich involving Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kingsley Coman.

Hudson-Odoi has enjoyed regular action for the West London club last season and finished the current campaign playing 37 games in all competitions, however, he only started 10 Premier League games.

Coman, meanwhile, has been strongly linked with a move away from Bayern Munich in recent months, and talks over an extension beyond 2023 are believed to have hit a brick wall.

According to L’Equipe, German giants are now open to selling Coman given their desperate need to balance the books, however, it would take a straight cash offer of €90m (£77.1m) to tempt Bayern Munich into a sale.

As a result, Chelsea are supposedly looking to sweeten the deal by offering Hudson-Odoi in the player-plus-cash deal, with Bayern trying and failing to prise him away from Premier League last summer, however, the Blues turned down a £35m bid from the German giants.

Bayern Munich head-coach boss Julian Nagelsmann is believed to be keen to keep Coman, however, Thomas Tuchel has allegedly decided that Callum Hudson-Odoi is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.
