Bayern Munich chief Salihamidzic: We really want to sign Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea are set for a busy transfer window beyond deciding the future of Hudson-Odoi, with Alvaro Morata, Davide Zappacosta and Cesc Fabregas all possibly leaving the club this winter.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has no plans to sign a new Chelsea contract and Bayern Munich are awaiting a response to their fourth bid for the winger, believed to be £35 million, a source has told ESPN FC.

The Bavarians have been linked with a new £35m after their previous bid was rejected and it has been claimed that the teenager prefers a move to Germany.

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.

Rudiger is a Germany global who knows the Bundesliga well, having begun his career at Stuttgart, and the 25-year-old defender wants Hudson-Odoi to remain at Stamford Bridge.

'It was a general question from him.

The 18-year-old has featured in just one Premier League encounter this season, coming on as a first-half substitute for Pedro during the 2-1 win at Watford on Boxing Day, before being replaced himself late on due to injury. 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.

Hudson-Odoi has been targeted by Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich for a shock January transfer to Germany.

"We don't need to speak about him too much". It is something he needs to decide.

"He played like a player of 25 or 26 years, I think - very good match of application, very good in the defensive phase, very, very good. I'd like to see him stay and have a real crack". "I hope they all stay", he said. He has all the tools to become a big player, but he has to work a lot.
