Chelsea prepared to report Bayern Munich for tapping up Hudson-Odoi

Frustrated Chelsea are prepared to report Bayern Munich to FIFA for tapping up Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Bayern have bid £35million for 18-year-old Hudson-Odoi, understood to be an initial £15m with £20m in add-ons.

"He is fast, good at dribbling, he would fit very well into our team," said Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic on Wednesday as he addressed the media at a training camp in Qatar.

Premier League rules prohibit such public comment but Bayern have not broken any FIFA regulations unless they are found to have "tapped up" Hudson-Odoi.

Chelsea do not want to sell but they could lose him for next to nothing when his contract expires in summer 2020.
