The Blues are looking to tempt the youngster to stay at the club and snub strong interest from German heavyweights Bayern Munich.

BAYERN Munich say they are in talks with Chelsea about buying teenage winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

"It's the most important thing during that young age, to play without losing the player".

The report added that Chelsea want to keep the player at the club, but Odoi wants a regular playing time and he is interested in leaving. It is believed that the Blues have tabled a £70,000-a-week contract offer for the 18-year-old, whose move to Bayern Munich seemed imminent, a few weeks ago.

During Chelsea's match against Newcastle last weekend, the England Under-19 forward was serenaded with chants of "Hudson-Odoi, we want you to stay" but Sarri, the Chelsea head coach, said he had not discussed his future with him.

IMF Warns of Risks to Global Growth, Advance Economies to Fall Sharply
For Canada, the IMF's estimate for growth in 2019 was 1.9 per cent, down from a forecast in October for growth of 2.0 per cent. IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath said global growth is weakening at a faster than expected pace and the risks have escalated.

Bayern had three bids rejected for the teenager, while their fourth bid is reportedly in the region of £35 million.

If Chelsea won't let him move this January, he would be expected to hold out until the summer without signing a contract, when a move to Bayern would be more likely.

He has not played in any Premier League game for the Blues this season as they now occupy fourth position on the standings with 47 points after 22 games played this term. However, the Italian still prefers Willian and Pedro in the Premier League games.

The teenager has been the subject of a number of offers from the German champions already this month, the highest of which is believed to have met Chelsea's £35m asking price for Hudson-Odoi. The impending arrival of Christian Pulisic in the summer will also further reduce the 18-year-old's chances at first team action.
