Hasan Salihamidzic: Bayern Munich really want to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi


The England Under-19 global reportedly asked to leave the club at the start of the transfer window following Bayern Munich's first flurry of bids, while the German club's sporting director recently confirmed that they "absolutely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi this month.

Bayern Munich have publicly confirmed interest in Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi, following a fourth bid of £35m for 18-year-old.

Bayern's latest bid of around £40million is believed to be close to Chelsea's valuation of the teenager but the club are reluctant to let him go without a series of clauses, included a buy-back option.

The young winger featured for the whole game in Chelsea's Carabao Cup Semi Final First Leg loss to Tottenham last night, in a move that many read as Sarri trying to convince the England global to stay. "He is a young player, a world champions and we are happy to have signed him".

"He is a good player, but he is very young", Alonso said.

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.

"So, why wouldn't he think about moving somewhere else if a club like Bayern Munich are in for him?" We'll see about the rest, ' he said. It is something he needs to decide.

"I think we deserved more. I have seen him every day in training, he has been really very normal", he told a news conference.

The 25-year-old, who made 66 Bundesliga appearances with Stuttgart, claims that he has been offering advice to Hudson-Odoi about what life's like in Germany.

To that end, Bayern seem to be doing all they can to lure him to Germany, with various reports this week that they are prepared to give him the number ten shirt should he sign.

"Today 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".
