Hudson-Odoi will be at Chelsea's level soon, says Sarri

Hudson-Odoi will be at Chelsea's level soon, says Sarri

Chelsea are considering whether to sell Willian after Barcelona made a renewed bid to land the Brazilian - but they are digging their heels in over Callum Hudson-Odoi and Bayern Munich's quest to land him.

Youngster Hudson-Odoi, who is heavily linked with a £45m switch to Bayern Munich, could maintain his place as Sarri is doing everything possible to ensure the England worldwide stays at Stamford Bridge beyond this season. I've seen how talented he is through training and you can see what he's capable of.

Hudson-Odoi is now keen to follow Sancho to Germany with Bayern Munich tabling a £35million offer for the 18-year-old Chelsea starlet. "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.

"And I've told him the Bundesliga is a nice league". We need to learn to attack spaces, or attack the box with the other players. The likes of Jadon Sancho going to the Bundesliga and doing brilliantly has helped, as has the English youth team's successes on the world stage and people now know these young players are good enough. "I'm very happy with the player and I'd like to have him in the future". "So they did not respect our club".

"I think that in this moment it's a very good solution because we are not less unsafe in the offensive phase and in the defensive phase we are more balanced", Sarri said.

The Blues have been busy bees in the transfer window with a number of players linked with a move and away from the club. In some ways it's insane that the Premier League clubs allow these players to go and will then have to pay a lot more to bring them back but if it's the only way those young English players will get an opportunity then so be it.

"We need to improve in the box. We need to improve in the last 20, 25 metres".

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. [We did it better] today with the wingers, in attacking spaces more than the box.
