Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic believes Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has the qualities the Bundesliga outfit are looking for as they continue their pursuit of the teenager.

Hudson-Odoi, 18, has been heavily linked with a January move to the Allianz Arena with Bayern reportedly making a number of bids to land the England youth international.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has urged Hudson-Odoi to remain with the Blues and handed him a start in Tuesday’s 1-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg defeat to Tottenham.

But Bayern, who trail league leaders Borussia Dortmund by six points, are still chasing their man and Salihamidzic sees Hudson-Odoi as an ideal player for the club.

“He is a very interesting player we really want to sign,” he told German newspaper Bild during a winter training camp in Doha.

“He has qualities that fit our game. He can dribble, he is fast, he moves well towards the goal. He is a young player who has great potential to evolve.

“I see in him a really good player who would certainly be a good face to join us.”

If Hudson-Odoi was to make the move to Germany he would become the latest English talent to head to the Bundesliga, with Jadon Sancho starring at Dortmund and Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson on loan at Hoffenheim.

Hasan Salihamidzic says Bayern Munich really want to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi

Benjamin Pavard to join Bayern Munich in summer for £31.4m

Bayern Munich have reached an agreement to sign the France defender Benjamin Pavard, who will join the German champions on a five-year deal from next season, according to the Bavarian club’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic.

The 22-year-old currently plays for their Bundesliga rivals VfB Stuttgart and was involved in France’s 2018 World Cup final victory over Croatia in Russia, a tournament where he also scored a stunning goal in the last-16 win over Argentina. The fee is believed to be €35m (£31.4m).

“I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from 1 July 2019,” Salihamidzic said during a Bayern training camp in Qatar. “He signed a five-year contract.”

Salihamidzic also confirmed Bayern’s interest in Chelsea teenage forward Callum Hudson-Odoi, as they look to boost their frontline following the expected departure of veteran wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the end of the season.

“He is a very interesting player whom we really want to sign,” Salihamidzic added of the 18-year-old. “He has qualities that fit into our game. He can dribble well and has a drive towards goal. He has a lot of potential.” The season resumes next week after the annual winter break with Bayern, who have won the last six league titles, in second place, six points behind the leaders, Borussia Dortmund.
