Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to turn down Bayern Munich’s advances and continue his career at Stamford Bridge. 

Alonso becomes the latest Chelsea player to advise the Ghanaian youngster on his future after Ross Barkley and Antonio Rudiger.

Chelsea have reportedly accepted a bid of around £35million from Bayern for Hudson-Odoi and the 18-year-old forward is seriously considering the move

The Spaniard said: ‘He is a good player, but he is very young. He needs to have patience and to be hungry and fight for a place in this team.

‘That is all he needs to do, he has all the conditions to be a great player, now it is up to him to fight for a place here or try to find more minutes somewhere else.

‘Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team and the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world. ‘I don’t know why someone would go to Bayern Munich.’

Hudson-Odoi is the son of former Hearts of Oak Ghanaian midfielder Bismark Odoi which makes him eligible to play for the senior national team, Black Stars, despite representing England at every age group from under-16 to under-19 level.

He was an influential figure as England won the Fifa U-17 World Cup in 2017.
