Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy has urged Chelsea winger, Callum Hudson-Odoi to leave Stamford and join Bayern Munich in a £35million deal this January transfer window. '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 become frustrated with the limited first-team opportunities available in the Premier League and has spotted an opening in the Bundesliga.

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.

'It was a general question from him.

Bayern are willing to offer the number 10 shirt to Hudson-Odoi, with Arjen Robben expected to leave the club in the summer, and it places Chelsea at a crossroads moment over whether to keep a youngster who looks keen to leave.

'You can see it from both sides.

Hudson-Odoi's outing against Spurs was only his 12th senior professional appearance, making the proposed fee all the more remarkable, but Rudiger believes that his team-mate lives up to the hype, despite his inexperience.

Bayern Munich have already secured one signing for next season, but the club's sporting director has now confirmed they want to sign a Chelsea attacker as well. "For his future, I wish him all the best but I just wish he stays with us". "I hope to have Diego Godin alongside me for a while longer".

"We don't need to speak about him too much".

"Maybe we were unlucky because they only had one chance and that was thanks to the linesman, the VAR", Alonso said.

"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".
