Hudson-Odoi has 18 months left on his contract with Chelsea and is understood to want to leave the club this month.

The 18-year-old’s preference is to join Bayern, who are prepared to pay as much as £35million for him.

And the Bundesliga giants have not hidden their admiration for the England youth international.

Earlier this week, Bayern’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, said Hudson-Odoi “is a very interesting player whom we really want to sign”.

And now Robben, who spent three seasons at Chelsea, says Hudson-Odoi should take the leap and play for Bayern.

“He is one of the best (young players) in Europe," Robben told beIN Sports.

"You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it.

“For young players, it’s always the same. First, you have to take the big step to achieve it.

“Become a professional football player at the highest level, get into the first team, get your place.

“Then, second, which can be more important, what’s sometimes missing is that you have to stay there.

“Staying there is often more difficult than actually becoming a footballer in the first place.

“You have to to prove it, game after game, season after season and don’t be happy.

"Don’t just be happy when you achieve something little or small.”

Robben’s comments are unlikely to appease Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri, who already accused Bayern of a lack of respect and professionalism.

He said: “I think it’s not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea.

“So they didn’t respect our club.”
