Callum Hudson-Odoi's spell at Chelsea might be near its end date.

The English winger has progressed through the youth teams and has impressed whenever Maurizio Sarri has used him.

Despite only making 12 appearances for the first team, Bayern have been alerted to his services.

The German giants have made several bids for the 18-year-old, with the latest totalling £35 million.

Chelsea remain desperate to keep him but it has been reported that Hudson-Odoi wants a move away.

And, according to Antonio Rudiger, it appears that he is certainly weighing up the possibility of moving to Germany.

The German defender made his name at VfB Stuttgart and, after Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Spurs on Tuesday, Rudiger revealed that Hudson-Odoi has in fact asked him about life in Germany.

"He asked me about Germany," Rudiger told reporters at Wembley Stadium, per Goal. "It was just a general question from him to know, because he is still young.

"I can advise him. But at the end of the day he decides about his future.

"He can develop as well here. You can see it from both sides. Of course, he can develop in Germany as well and don't forget Bayern Munich is also a big club. It is something he needs to decide for his future. I wish him all the best, but for me I just wish he stays with us."

That is interesting stuff.

Rudiger didn't reveal his answer but, the fact that Hudson-Odoi is asking about life in Germany highlights that he is strongly considering a move away.

Rudiger went on to add that he hopes the 18-year-old stays at the club.

"We don't need to speak about him too much," he added. "He is good, everyone knows that, everyone can see that.

"But he is still 18 and at that age you can't look too far ahead. People have to give him time. For me he is an upcoming star, but he still needs to work hard.

"Of course, as a young player it's very important to play. Where it is? I hope it will be here."

And Rudiger commented that he views Hudson-Odoi as the 'shooting star' out of all the youngsters at the club.

"To be honest, of all the young players I have seen at Chelsea, he is the shooting star for me," he continued. "He has all the tools to become a big player, but he has to work a lot. I think for him everything is going very well at the moment.

"He is a young lad and has less pressure so he can show what he can do. He did very well and caused a lot of problems to them.

"He is trying very hard. You have to because he is a young lad and is on his way forward to the next step so he needs to improve where he can."
