The England Under-19 global reportedly asked to leave the club at the start of the transfer window following Bayern Munich's first flurry of bids, while the German club's sporting director recently confirmed that they "absolutely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi this month.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has revealed team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi has asked for his advice about a move to Bayern Munich as the Blues face a battle to hold on to the teenager.

According to Sky, Bayern and Chelsea have agreed a transfer of $44.6 million, but it is unclear whether Hudson-Odoi would move in the current Bundesliga transfer window, which closes on January 31, or in July.

The young winger featured for the whole game in Chelsea's Carabao Cup Semi Final First Leg loss to Tottenham last night, in a move that many read as Sarri trying to convince the England worldwide to stay.

"They've just signed [Christian] Pulisic for £60m and this is one of the best young payers in world football at the moment and he's not going to get any game time".

Adam Schiff , the chairman of the House intelligence committee, also said he would be seeking a closed door hearing with Cohen. Trump told reporters in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday that he was "not worried" about Cohen's testimony "at all".

"What I can say: We like the player and take a great interest in signing him", he said.

Head coach Maurizio Sarri and his assistant Gianfranco Zola have both implored Hudson-Odoi to stay put at Stamford Bridge, and left-back Alonso has followed suit.

"We definitely want to sign him - he has the qualities which would fit very well into our team", said Salihamidzic at Bayern's winter training camp in Doha. "I can advise him but at the end of the day he decides his future". "We'll see about the rest".

That is according to Chelsea defender and Germany worldwide Antonio Rudiger.

"He played like a player of 25 or 26 years, I think - very good match of application, very good in the defensive phase, very, very good. He was completely normal in this period. I'd like to see him stay and have a real crack".
