Paris St. Germain are ready to join Bayern Munich in their pursuit of Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Bayern tried to capture the 18-year old in January with a series of offers, and Hudson-Odoi even handed in a transfer request to try to force a move to the Bundesliga side. However, Chelsea turned down the offers and told him to stay, with assurances given to the player that he would be given more game time over the rest of the season.
However, those assurances have not been honoured so far. Odoi has been given just 13 minutes of action in the Premier League since asking to leave, and was kept on the bench by Maurizio Sarri during the FA Cup defeat by Manchester United on Monday evening, despite many Chelsea fans begging for him to be introduced to the fray.
Now, as The Sun reports, with Bayern Munich already prepared to go back into the market for him, they are likely to face competition for his signature from PSG.
