Willian confident Hudson-Odoi will stay

Callum Hudson-Odoi can establish himself as one of the best players in the world and is not going anywhere, according to Chelsea team-mate Willian.

Hudson-Odoi, 18, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation with Bayern Munich making an offer of £35m for his services.

The bids have prompted the youngster to tender a transfer request before scoring in Chelsea’s comfortable 3-0 FA Cup victory over Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday afternoon.

However, Willian, speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, believes Hudson-Odoi’s future remains at Stamford Bridge amid Bayern’s interest.

“He’s going nowhere – he’s a special talent, a very good player and is staying with us,” said Willian.

“Of course he is only 18 but he can improve a lot and in the future can become one of the best players in the world.

“It’s difficult not to think about Bayern Munich because they are a great team as well but for me, his future is here.

“He has to stay because he knows the club, and I am sure he will play more.”
