Many Chelsea fans may have been shocked to see Callum Hudson-Odoi in their starting line-up for their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Spurs.

Earlier in the day, Bayern Munich had placed a £35 million bid for the 18-year-old, according to Sky Sports.

And it seemed the youngster was on the verge of a move to the German giants.

However, the reports appeared to be premature when Maurizio Sarri handed Hudson-Odoi his second consecutive start.

But how did he get on during Chelsea’s 1-0 loss?

Well, despite the speculation surrounding his future, Hudson-Odoi impressed.

The Daily Mail gave him a 7/10 rating and wrote: “Arguably the biggest night of his fledgling career. Enhanced his already burgeoning reputation.”

But if you missed Hudson-Odoi’s promising performance, an individual highlights package has emerged - and it’s impressive.

The youngster was fearless, constantly running at defenders and trying to make things happen. It didn't always come off but he certainly looked more threatening than Willian - who was substituted before Hudson-Odoi.

So, what happens now with his future?

After the game, Sarri admitted he was pleased with his performance and how he’s seemingly ignoring all the headlines right now.

“Odoi in the last week has been very normal,” said Sarri, per the Telegraph. “He is improving. In the last match he played well and also today he had a good match.

“He played like a player of 25 [or] 26 years, good application. But he has been normal in the last week. Maybe he does not read anything.”

But Bayern Munich have also been talking about Hudson-Odoi.

Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic didn’t hide his admiration for the Englishman.

"He is a very interesting player whom we absolutely want to sign up,” the former Bayern player said.

“He has qualities that fit our game. He's a dribbler, he's fast, and can beat an opponent.”

Given the success of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson in the Bundesliga, it's no wonder Bayern want to snap up another young English wonderkid.
