'Everyone has known for a few years we have got a fantastic crop of players, but as I said the goal is for them to be playing for Chelsea.
But after the match Antonio Rudiger revealed that Hudson-Odoi has asked him about his experiences in German football, and Bayern are increasingly confident that they will be able to complete a deal for the 18-year-old this month.
Hudson-Odoi has played seven times this season and has 18 months left on his contract.
The young Chelsea winger dazzled with an impressive performance against Spurs in the League Cup on Tuesday night, but it all seems a little too late for the Blues, who have been doing their best to try and convince him into staying.
Bayern are willing to offer the number 10 shirt to Hudson-Odoi, with Arjen Robben expected to leave the club in the summer, and it places Chelsea at a crossroads moment over whether to keep a youngster who looks keen to leave. He can develop here but he can develop in Germany as well - and don't forget Bayern Munich are also a big club.
However, Rudiger believes Hudson-Odoi can thrive at Stamford Bridge if he chooses to remain. It is something he needs to decide for his future.
"I see in him a really good player who would certainly be a good face to join us". "We want to sign him", said Salihamidzic. "I hope to have Diego Godin alongside me for a while longer". "He has all the tools to become a big player, but he has to work a lot".
They have seen him break into the first-team fold at Stamford Bridge this season, but feel more opportunities can be presented to him in Germany.
"The guy stopped, if we have to wait for VAR I think he has to continue, but he stopped in the middle of the park".
