Callum Hudson-Odoi: Bayern Munich explain interest in £35m Chelsea winger

"I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from July 1, 2019", Salihamidzic told reporters during a Bayern training camp in Qatar, without giving any financial details of the transfer.

Such is their keenness to sign the England youth global 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".

The latest is believed to meet Chelsea's valuation of the player and Bayern Munich are awaiting a response.

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

"He is very young, he has the future", the Italian said.

Chelsea remain desperate to keep Hudson-Odoi, and head coach Maurizio Sarri's surprise decision to start him against Tottenham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal on Tuesday was part of a broader club effort aimed at convincing the winger that his future lies at Stamford Bridge. We'll see about the rest, ' he said.

And following the success of players like Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund, the former professional turned pundit Kilbane thinks Hudson-Odoi should make the move and try his luck in the German top flight.

"I think for him everything is going very well at the moment".

'All credit to him, he has shown what he is capable of, shown why he is getting this attention and hopefully he signs his contract and does it many more times for Chelsea'. He is good, everyone knows that, everyone can see that.

According to reports, he has even discussed the move with his German teammate Antonio Rudiger, although the defender says that he tried to convince him to stay in England.

"I hope that his refusal of signing a new contract at Chelsea is based on a want to play more football. For me he is an upcoming star, but he still needs to work hard".
