The German giants are vigorously pursuing Hudson Odoi, 18, who is one of the brightest talents to emerge from Chelsea - and England - in recent years.

Bayern Munich have moved to confirm their interest in Chelsea's young England global, Callum Hudson-Odoi, with Bayern's director of sport saying "we really want him".

Marcos Alonso does not understand why Callum Hudson-Odoi would choose to leave Chelsea and the Premier League behind to join Bayern Munich.

"Of course he asked me about Germany", Rudiger told reporters after Chelsea were beaten by Tottenham at Wembley on Tuesday.

Pulisic arrived in west London for just under £60m last week and his signing raised further questions about the future of many young Blues players.

Callum Hudson-Odoi should stay at Chelsea because he has finally won a place in the first team he could retain, according to one former player.

"We definitely want to sign him - he has the qualities which would fit very well into our team", Bayern's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic said on Wednesday at their winter training camp in Doha. "We want to sign him", said Salihamidzic.

Hudson-Odoi's outing against Spurs was only his 12th senior professional appearance, making the proposed fee all the more remarkable, but Rudiger believes that his team-mate lives up to the hype, despite his inexperience.

'You can see it from both sides.

"So, why wouldn't he think about moving somewhere else if a club like Bayern Munich are in for him?" It is something he needs to decide.

"It's up to him now to stay in the team but I think it would be wrong if he left".

"They just need a centre-forward".

"It created a lot of confusion, I don't know what they have to do, but they have to explain it properly to the linesmen and referee to us, because if the guy stopped then I don't know why play kept going".
