Bayern disrespecting Chelsea over Hudson-Odoi pursuit - Sarri

Hudson-Odoi has only made one substitute appearance in the Premier League this season but has starred in cup competitions for the Blues.

Chelsea, however, have not given up hope of changing Hudson-Odoi's mind, and Sarri - who picked the 18-year-old to start against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg at Wembley on Tuesday - hit out at Bayern.

On Wednesday, a source told ESPN FC that Hudson-Odoi had no plans to sign a new contract at Chelsea as Bayern await a response to their fourth bid for the 18-year-old, understood to be in the region of £35 million.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has urged rising star Callum Hudson-Odoi to turn down Bayern Munich's advances and continue his career at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is dipping his toe into the transfer market, but is not willing to make the plunge to strengthen his squad as we head into the second part of the season. Lampard has admired Hudson-Odoi's performances from afar and hopes the England Under-19 global is still a Chelsea player when the January transfer window closes. "He can do better because the potential is higher but he is really very important for us and it is impossible to lose him in January", said Sarri.

Sarri said: "I think that it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea". I don't know what to say, I do not know the situation. The club knows my opinion. Let's see what happens.

Morata is equally back to fitness after missing their 2-0 win over the League One side last weekend, though he faces bleak future at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard said: 'He is a good player, but he is very young. "You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it", he said.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It's looking increasingly likely Willian will be a Barcelona player come close of play this month". The Blues manager stated that he is not the controlling the transfer market but admitted that the Blues need two players.
