Bayern Munich legend Giovanni Elber has called on his former club to make a move for young Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi when the transfer window reopens in summer.
The former Bayern Munich striker told popular media outlet Goal that the Bavarian giants must make the call to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi ahead of other major European clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona.
German champions Bayern Munich tried and failed to sign Hudson-Odoi during the winter transfer window despite making five separate bids for him.
Chelsea rejected their bids in January with the Blues determined not to let the recently capped England international leave the club.
Callum Hudson-Odoi also tried to force the move to Bayern Munich but his transfer request was rejected by Chelsea officials.
The 18-year-old has been largely frustrated with the lack of playing time at Chelsea this season having forced his way into the Blues first team during preseason.
Giovanni Elber told reporters that Bayern Munich have to do everything to sign the young Blues’ winger before adding that the Bavarian giants won’t know if Hudson-Odoi would be a hit or not if they don’t take a chance on him.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has generally made positive impact each time he was given a chance this season.
