Bayern Confirm They Want To Sign Chelsea Attacker

10 January 2019

The 18-year-old is keen on moving to the Allianz Arena but Bayern have seen three bids rejected for the winger.

Hudson-Odoi started Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, in a move from Maurizio Sarri that was created to persuade the winger to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Marcos Alonso has queried why Callum Hudson-Odoi would want to go to Bayern Munich after seeing Chelsea receive an improved £35 million ($45m) bid for the teenage winger.

With Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery coming towards the end of their time in Germany, Bayern are on the lookout for replacements and have identified Hudson-Odoi as a prime target.

But Bayern, who trail league leaders Borussia Dortmund by six points, are still chasing their man and Salihamidzic sees Hudson-Odoi as an ideal player for the club.

Hudson-Odoi's selection to start Tuesday's 1-0 defeat by Tottenham at Wembley in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-finals was a shock, but he gave a good account of himself in a match that Chelsea were unlucky to lose.

Amid the prospect of a move to the Bundesliga, Hudson-Odoi has been questioning his Berlin-born team-mate Rudiger about life in Germany.

'You can see it from both sides. 'Everyone has known for a few years we have got a fantastic crop of players, but as I said the goal is for them to be playing for Chelsea. He can develop here but he can develop in Germany as well - and don't forget Bayern Munich are also a big club.

"Of course, we want to win, but this is decided over two games and 180 minutes", he said.

"I think the situation is a little bit similar to the one Manchester United experienced with [Paul] Pogba where after a certain time he simply did not believe the club anymore that his time was going to come, despite the best promises and all the things that [Sir Alex] Ferguson was telling him at the time".
