Hudson-Odoi is a player we absolutely want to sign - Bayern chief

Chelsea are willing to accept the offer - which does not include a buy-back clause per Sky Sports - should their last ditch efforts at convincing Hudson-Odoi to remain at Stamford Bridge prove unfruitful.

Jadon Sancho's success in the Bundesliga has had a domino effect, with more British players heading out there in search of first team football - Arsenal's Reiss Nelson has starred for Hoffenheim this season.

Chelsea star Hudson-Odoi is wanted by Bayern Munich with reports last night claiming the Bundesliga giants had launched a £35million bid. "Now with the midfielders we are in trouble, I think, because I don't know the [injury] situation of Ruben [Loftus-Cheek], if it is serious or not", he said.

Chelsea are yet to comment on rumours that Hudson-Odoi could be sold but, writing for the Daily Mail, pundit Sutton was impressed. A very good match with application, very good in the defensive phase, but he has been completely normal.

Fabregas appeared to say goodbye to Chelsea after Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge, where he applauded all sides of the ground.

"He played like a player of 25, 26 years, I think".


"We have very important players in the same position, sometimes he will be on the bench - as Willian, as Pedro - but now I can start to consider him at the same level", the Chelsea manager said. "To stay here is better for him".

"In this club there is a rule - the renewal for players over 30 is usually one year".

Nevertheless, an agreement between the two clubs is expected to be reached soon and will depend more on how quickly Chelsea can find a replacement for the Spanish midfielder before the close of the January transfer market.

"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club".

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reiterated his desire to keep Hudson-Odoi at the club after handing the player another opportunity to play in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg defeat to Tottenham on Tuesday.

Sarri also told Chelsea fans to focus on supporting their team instead of directing chants at Spurs fans in Tuesday's tie.
