The Chelsea youngster is seen as one of English football’s most exciting rising stars, with Bayern Munich already rumored to have tabled a £20million bid for him.
Borussia Dortmund are also believed to be monitoring the situation, making it tricky for Leipzig to emerge as front-runners.
They are likely to sit back and assess the situation for now, as they weigh up whether or not to make a bid for his services.
Respected German football journalist Raphael Honigstein told Sky Sports' Sunday Supplement about the “cult following” Hudson-Odoi has in Germany:
"He’s had a cult following among Bundesliga supremos for quite a while. There’s been a lot of clubs interested in him, and he’s made so much progress.  
"His stock has risen to the point where he’s gone from Borussia Monchengladbach to Dortmund, to right at the top now where Bayern are interested in him. 
"It’s the [Jadon] Sancho effect – everyone thinks they can get the next Sancho, and I also think from his point of view, he thinks he can be the next Sancho, doing what Sancho’s done going to the Bundesliga."
The 18-year-old has only managed six appearances for Chelsea this season, with four of those coming in the Europa League.
The Blues will know that they have a special talent on their hands, but a big-money bid for him could turn their heads.
