German defender Antonio Rudiger revealed that his Chelsea team-mate Callum Hudson-Odoi has asked him about his homeland, amid interest from Bayern Munich

After struggling to earn regular opportunities this season at Chelsea, Hudson-Odoi is understood to be keen on seeking a move away from Stamford Bridge this month.

Now Bayern, who have reportedly had four bids turned down by Chelsea for Hudson-Odoi, confirmed their “great interest” in the 18-year-old on Wednesday.

And Rudiger has admitted a move to the Bundesliga is definitely on the teenage winger’s mind.

“He asked me about Germany. It was a general question from him,” said Rudiger, according to Sports Mole.

Frankfurt deny receiving any offers for Barca target Luka Jovic

Barcelona nor any other team have made any offers yet for Luka Jovic, says Eintracht Frankfurt supervisory board chairman Wolfgang Steubing.

“He is still young, I can advise him, but at the end of the day he decides about his future

“You can see it from both sides. He can develop here but he can develop in Germany as well — and don’t forget Bayern Munich are also a big club.

“For his future, I wish him all the best but I just wish he stays with us.”

Despite his lack of opportunities, Hudson-Odoi has started in Chelsea’s last two games in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
