BAYERN MUNICH fear Chelsea will increase their valuation of Callum Hudson-Odoi after his England call-up.
The teenager was originally picked for the Three Lions Under-21 side but got the call from Gareth Southgate to step up to join the senior squad for the Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

But his international promotion has set the alarm bells ringing in Bavaria as the Bundesliga champions worry Chelsea’s price for Hudson-Odoi could go north, say Bild.
The 18-year-old told Chelsea in January he didn’t see his future at Stamford Bridge and asked the club to let him move to Germany as he had no intention of penning a new deal.
Bayern had several bids rejected by Chelsea after matching the club’s original valuation.
The Blues are desperate to convince Hudson-Odoi to change his mind and sign a new long-term deal.
Chelsea fans have been left frustrated by the winger's lack of first-team action this season.
Maurizio Sarri has gone with Pedro and Willian over him in the league with Hudson-Odoi featuring almost only in cup games.

The winger did come off the bench late on in Sunday's 2-0 loss against Everton, but wasn't given enough time to make any real impact – much to supporters' frustration.
