Hudson-Odoi now has 18 months remaining on his contract and despite Chelsea's best efforts, it has been claimed that his representatives have no interest in entertaining an extension to that deal.

Bayern Munich Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirmed the German club's interest in the teenager today, and revealed that the German club want to sign Hudson-Odoi.

According to Sky, Bayern and Chelsea have agreed a transfer of $44.6 million, but it is unclear whether Hudson-Odoi would move in the current Bundesliga transfer window, which closes on January 31, or in July.

"Of course he asked me about Germany", Rudiger told reporters after the Blues lost the first leg of their League Cup semi-final 1-0 against Tottenham on Tuesday.

"They've just signed [Christian] Pulisic for £60m and this is one of the best young payers in world football at the moment and he's not going to get any game time".

"Of course, as a young player it's very important to play".

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.

"So, why wouldn't he think about moving somewhere else if a club like Bayern Munich are in for him?"
