The 18-year-old has emerged as a surprise target for Bayern Munich over the past couple of weeks, while Serie A giants Juventus have also been touted with an interest in the Chelsea FC forward.

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.

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.
