The Bundesliga champions are very keen to sign the teenage forward, who is struggling for first team opportunities at Stamford Bridge.Hudson-Odoi has impressed whenever he has featured for Chelsea this season, including assists for both goals in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest. However he is not a regular starter for Chelsea and with Christian Pulisic set to arrive from Borussia Dortmund next summer, his chances look likely to become even more scarce.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – MARCH 29: Head coach Rick Pitino of the Louisville Cardinals reacts as he coaches against the Louisville Cardinals during the Midwest Region Semifinal round of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Lucas Oil Stadium on March 29, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Saturday’s fantastic Kentucky-Louisville game should have made headlines for the great game on the court, but an alleged gesture by Cardinals coach Rick Pitino as he exited the floor has captured the attention of the college basketball world. Following his team’s two point loss, a Kentucky fan tweeted a video of Pitino allegedly giving the middle finger to taunting Wildcats fans. It is hard to tell definitively what the gesture Pitino makes is, but a new video has come out that gives a slightly better angle.This video, posted to Facebook by Adam Joseph Gatzke, is still grainy, but it definitely looks like Pitino extends a finger, and it doesn’t look like it could be his index finger to make a “No. 1” gesture, as Pitino said was the case.Between this incident, and Pitino skipping his post-game press conference, and the looming questions surrounding his program due to the sex scandal that broke before the season, Pitino is having a very rough 2015. Fox Sports’ Aaron Torres has gone as far as to call him the “least likable” person in college sports. If he did, in fact, flip off a number of fans, even if they taunted him, it doesn’t help his case there.[Reddit]
