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.

Hudson-Odoi is available to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday, but Sarri said he would monitor the 18-year-old's condition after noticing fatigue this week.

Bayern have made several bids for the 18-year-old England youth global since the transfer window opened, with their latest bid reported to be £35 million. I am very happy with the player, he is improving a lot.

Chelsea have so far rejected Bayern's advances and Hudson-Odoi has been promoted to their starting XI for the Blues last two fixtures.

An agreement has already been reached between the Premier League club and Higuain, but they are looking to release him from his contract at AC Milan, where he is now on loan from Juventus.

They are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club I think.

"It's insane to have a market of 30 days in this moment of the season, because we play every three days, so we need rest", Sarri added.

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. I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute'.

"Me and Callum are close friends", said Sancho, speaking from Dortmund's winter training camp in Marbella.

However, Sarri did effectively confirm it by stating that he wants replacements brought in for Fabregas and striker Alvaro Morata should they leave. "I'm very happy with the player and I'd like to have him in the future". "So I think he has to think only about playing because in this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think of the next match".

Sarri said he was not aware of any approach to Willian, but added: "Of course [I don't want to lose him] because he is really very important".
