Chelsea consider Willian sale, but not Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea have reportedly accepted a bid of around £35million from Bayern for Hudson-Odoi and the 18-year-old forward is seriously considering the move after witnessing Jadon Sancho's meteoric rise in Germany.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic admitted the club's interest in Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday, much to Chelsea's annoyance, with the Blues threatening to report the Germans to Federation Internationale de Football Association if there is any evidence of an illegal approach.

"I need a replacement, but I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

Speaking ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle, Metro UK quoted Sarri as saying, "I think it is not professional".

"When I lose a match I cut my hair, usually", he said.

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". 'Hopefully, we will see more of that. "In my opinion we need two players, but then it is up to the club".

"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club". He's good at dribbling and has pace.

And former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has encouraged Hudson-Odoi to take the chance and leave.

But the best solution for Chelsea could be to bring in a left-back of Sarri's choosing in either January or the summer and one outstanding candidate should spring to mind.

The full-back appears to be getting better every week at the King Power Stadium and Chelsea have enjoyed transfer dealings with Leicester in the past, with N'Golo Kante proof of that.

Willian is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to make the move to Barcelona.

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

"The Chelsea academy graduate is now just 4/5 to join the German champions during this transfer window, with a stay at Stamford Bridge priced at even-money".
