The teenager is understood to be keen to join Bayern Munich, and the German club have made a fourth bid for the winger's services Sky Sports News understands, matching Chelsea's valuation of the winger. '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.

But Bayern, who trail league leaders Borussia Dortmund by six points, are still chasing their man and Salihamidzic sees Hudson-Odoi as an ideal player for the club. "It was just a general question from him to know, because he is still young".

Chelsea remain desperate to keep Hudson-Odoi, and head coach Maurizio Sarri's surprise decision to start him against Tottenham in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal on Tuesday was part of a broader club effort aimed at convincing the winger that his future lies at Stamford Bridge.

"They can't really turn around and say, 'Oh you've met the asking price, actually we want a different price'". But for me I just wish he stays with us.
