Chelsea Transfer Roundup: Hudson-Odoi bid, no return for Higuain, defensive duo want out

It is still a waiting game in regards to the managerial job at Stamford Bridge, with no-one yet to be confirmed as the new boss after Maurizio Sarri’s departure to Juventus.

Today’s Blues transfer roundup includes a rejected bid for a star winger, an update on a former loanee and potential exits for two of the club’s full-backs.

Hudson-Odoi bid rejected

According to journalist Ronan Murphy, Bayern Munich have made another bid for 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Bundesliga club made four offers in January, all of which were rejected, just like this last one. The latest offer was reportedly €25m (£22.4m).

Higuain will not return to Chelsea is reporting that Chelsea are not interested in taking Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain back to Stamford Bridge. The Argentinian spent the second half of last season on loan at the south west London club, scoring seven goals in 23 appearances.

Marcos Alonso and Davide Zappacosta are both open to moves away from Chelsea according to The Telegraph. Alonso was signed in 2016 from Fiorentina, while Zappacosta joined from Torino a year later.
