Paul Merson advises Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay patient

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been the subject of repeated bids from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, with reports claiming that the youngster is not willing to put pen to paper on a new contract.

However, Paul Merson believes that a move to Bayern won’t be good for Hudson-Odoi and insists that his interest would be best served by staying patient at Chelsea.

He said: “He’s got great potential, it’s all right having potential but you have to then go on and do it. A lot of people have potential, but get in and don’t produce.

“If I was his agent, I’d be sitting down with him and saying be patient, stay at Chelsea. Give it a while, you’re a young kid.

“Bayern are an ageing football team, they’re only going one way. I don’t think they’re going to be the dominant team they were, they’ve got a lot of older players in the team now, and when they change it around, there’ll be a lot of pressure on him – you won’t be playing with your Riberys and your Mullers, he’d be expected to pull up trees.

“He’s a young kid, playing behind top-drawer players at the moment. He’s not at a mid-table club thinking ‘why am I not playing?’ it’s Willian, Pedro, proper players. You can only learn from them. The manager’s said that he wants him to stay, and there’s a position there. Pedro might be on his way, who knows next season.”
