Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick insists it’s only natural for the Champions League holders to maintain an interest in players of the calibre of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The England international was linked with the a move to the Bundesliga giants 18 months ago when his Chelsea career was stalling under the management of Maurizio Sarri.

Hudson-Odoi eventually opted to sign a new long-term deal and was destined to become a cornerstone of Frank Lampard’s new-look side before he suffered a long-term Achilles injury.

The 19-year-old struggled to regain his best form upon his return to fitness and Chelsea’s near unprecedented summer of spending has only rendered the task of cementing a regular place in Lampard’s starting XI tougher than ever.

Christian Pulisic’s injury has handed the versatile winger the chance to impress during the early weeks of the season and he has featured in four of his club’s five matches so far this season.

Bayern swept all before them on the European and domestic front last season and have added Leroy Sane to the mix following the Germany international’s big money move from Manchester City.

Despite the devastating array of attacking options he has at his disposal, Flick confirmed ahead of Sunday’s match against Hertha Berlin that Hudson-Odoi is again on Bayern’s radar.

He said: ‘He’s one of the best talents in his position, he can play on the wings and also as a No.10. That is why it’s legitimate for us as Bayern to show interest.

‘We’ll wait until Monday to see what happens and when Monday comes we will define the goals that we consider realistic.’
