Sarri slams Bayern over Hudson-Odoi interest

The 28-year-old often divides opinion at Stamford Bridge due to his inconsistent displays and whether he can be the left-back for the foreseeable future under Sarri remains to be seen.

Yesterday Bayern Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic publicly declared his clubs interest in the highly-rated teenager, a move that has clearly irked Chelsea and their Italian coach. "If that's not the case, then we'll have to take a look, but for as long as he is here, he will continue to be a professional and he's not going to be a problem for me".

Chelsea play Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday with their transfer business - both incomings an outgoings - making plenty of news. I think it is a great opportunity for him to do that'.

Higuain's brother is claimed to have held talks with Chelsea to assess the possibility of a deal this month.

"Then it depends on the club decision".

Other strikers have been linked but The Sun say landing Higuain, who is now on a season-long loan at AC Milan from Juventus, is the Blues' priority.

But he did admit Chelsea would need to find a replacement if out-of-form Spain striker Morata leaves, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid reportedly interested in signing him on loan. I am happy with the player because he is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase.

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement".

Higuain knows Sarri well as he played under him during their time at Napoli where the striker arguably played his best football having scored 91 goals in just 146 games during a three-year spell at Stadio San Paolo.

"He needs to move in some moments without the ball".

After Eden Hazard was deployed as a "false nine" in Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg loss to Tottenham, it appears Olivier Giroud is likely to start up front against the Magpies.

Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona, but Sarri ruled out the prospect of the Brazilian departing this month.
