Bayern Munich and Chelsea have begun talks over Callum Hudson-Odoi joining the Bundesliga club on loan.
The Bundesliga club signed Leroy Sane from Manchester City this summer however manager Hansi Flick has wanted to add a fourth winger to the team this summer.
It now looks like Hudson-Odoi, who was previously a target for the German club, could be moving to the Allianz Arena. According to Bild, the two sides have started talks over a temporary deal.

The 19-year-old broke into the Chelsea first team in the 2018/19 season under Maurizio Sarri and instantly became a hit with fans, who had often been starved of a home grown player in the first team.
Bayern declared an interest for the player in January 2019 and he handed in a transfer request, something that annoyed the west London club.
Chelsea were adamant that they would keep the winger but the rumours again came round that summer, with Bayern also trying to sign Sane, but the teenager signed a new deal with the Blues.
The England international has made four appearances for Frank Lampard's team so far this season, starting twice in the Carabao Cup and coming off the bench twice in the league, but there is increased competition for playing time at Stamford Bridge this season.
Bayern signed Sane, to add to their already ridiculous front line but with Ivan Perisic returning to Inter, after his year long loan, Flick has wanted to add another player to his ranks.
The lack of back up has been highlighted by the fact that the former Manchester City winger has picked up an injury and will be out for a few weeks.
