Keane urges Hudson-Odoi to leave Chelsea for Bayern

Keane urges Hudson-Odoi to leave Chelsea for Bayern

Juventus are to rival Bayern Munich with a bid for Callum Hudson-Odoi after holding talks with the Chelsea youngster's representatives, according to a report.

Victor of two FA Youth Cups with Chelsea, as well as the Under-17 World Cup with England, Hudson-Odoi made his first team debut last January in an FA Cup tie with Newcastle.

But after Chelsea announced the signing of Christian Pulisic last week, chances for Hudson-Odoi to make an impact in the first team next season are likely to be limited. "A very good match".

"What I can say: We like the player and take a great interest in signing him". "He is an English player, he is very young and I think he has a very good future here; with the England team and with Chelsea".

"He is ready for the Premier League", said Maruizio Sarri.

The 18-year-old provided both goals for Alvaro Morata in Chelsea's FA Cup third round victory over Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"Yesterday he had a free day for the injury but I don't know (if he is going to Monaco)".

"We must identify those players which can improve us".

And unsurprisingly fans were desperate to see Hudson-Odoi stay with Chelsea.

The Italian also said that Hudson-Odoi being a product of the academy was important for Chelsea, who have reportedly rejected a £20m offer for the teenager.

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.

And Salihamidzic has confirmed that the club are keen on signing the winger, telling reporters at Bayern's winter training camp in Doha: "He's a very interesting player that we really want to sign".

"With the midfielders we are in trouble as, without Cesc, we only have five", he said.
