Bayern Confirm They Want To Sign Chelsea Attacker

Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Chelsea FC starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi has been acting "very normal" despite the transfer speculation surrounding the teenager's future at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi, 18, has been heavily linked with a January move to the Allianz Arena with Bayern reportedly making a number of bids to land the England youth global.

Chelsea have been angered by the public nature of Bayern's pursuit, with sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic confirming on Wednesday that the German giants "absolutely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi this month.

'As someone from our academy I would obviously love him to stay and the dream for all of us at the academy is to see our boys playing in the first team, ' he said.

Hudson-Odoi has featured in just one Premier League match this season, but played the full 90 minutes in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round last weekend.

"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.

'It was a general question from him. "I can advise him, but at the end of the day he decides about his future".

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.

'You can see it from both sides. We'll see about the rest. He can develop here but he can develop in Germany as well - and don't forget Bayern Munich are also a big club.

'It is [a compliment] and I don't think anyone would be surprised, ' he said. What I can say: We like the player and take a great interest in signing him.
