Chelsea question Bayern Munich's move for Callum Hudson-Odoi?

Bayern's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed on Wednesday that the German champions "definitely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi, who has just 18 months left on his current contract with Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi has only made 11 senior appearances for Chelsea FC but his reputation is such that the 18-year-old has two of Europe's biggest clubs being regularly touted with a move to sign the Blues starlet.

"Of course he asked me about Germany", Rudiger told reporters after Chelsea were beaten by Tottenham at Wembley on Tuesday.

'It was a general question from him. "I hope they all stay", he said.

"In the end, I think you're better off with him, a proven centre-forward who is scoring goals this year, rather than makeshift centre-forwards all the time".

Such is their keenness to sign the England youth worldwide that sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic spoke openly about their interest on Wednesday, as he said: "He is fast, good at dribbling, he would fit very well into our team".

If Hudson-Odoi remains a Chelsea player beyond the January transfer window but refuses to sign a new deal, his value will decrease come the summer and the club are wary of that.

They have seen him break into the first-team fold at Stamford Bridge this season, but feel more opportunities can be presented to him in Germany.

"We certainly value him as a player".

They believe Hudson-Odoi's ambition can be matched in west London, with Alonso among the team-mates of the hot prospect urging him to carefully weigh up his options.

"He is improving, in the last match he played very well and also today I think a very good match".

"It created a lot of confusion, I don't know what they have to do, but they have to explain it properly to the linesmen and referee to us, because if the guy stopped then I don't know why play kept going".
