Bayern Munich have revealed their interest in the young prodigy who is currently shining under Maurizio Sarri.
Hudson-Odoi has handed in his transfer request but German outlet Bild suggests that Chelsea have reportedly rejected his request.
Bild’s official Bayern Munich account tonight tweeted: “@ChelseaFC replied to the transfer request of #Hudson-Odoi: No winter change! Summer possible though. #FCBayern @BILD_Sport.”
However, former Premier League and England star Murphy believes the 18-year-old has already left in his mind.
“I think he’s gone, in his head,” Danny Murphy told the BBC.
“Now, what we don’t know is, no matter what bid they make, Chelsea have the right to say no because he’s under contract with them.”
“But I think it sounds like and from everything we’re hearing, that in his head, he’s already wearing red.”

Speaking on the pitch following Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in their FA Cup clash, Hudson-Odoi was asked about his future.
The starlet responded: “I don’t know, I can’t say.”
“I’ll keep working hard and you never know what will happen.”
“I thought we did very well. It was a great team performance.”
“We did very well in training and worked really hard.”
“That’s one of my highlights. It was nice to top it off with a goal.”
Hudson-Odoi, who is said to be linked with a £40m move to the German champions, has scored two times in 11 appearances for the Blues’ first team this season.
