Sarri slams 'unprofessional' Bayern Munich over Hudson-Odoi pursuit

Chelsea prepared to report Bayern to FIFA over Hudson-Odoi - sources

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.

Bayern are reported to have tabled three bids for the prospect, who is apparently eager to leave the club in search of greater first-team exposure having appeared just once in the Premier League this term.

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.

There is widely-held suspicion at Chelsea that Bayern are coordinating their efforts with Hudson-Odoi's camp to get him out of Stamford Bridge, though it is also accepted that accusations of "tapping up" are hard to prove.

"Then I don't know what to say, I don't know the situation".

"It is not professional for Bayern Munich to talk about wanting Callum Hudson-Odoi as he is under contract at Chelsea", Sarri told the press ahead of his sides trip to Newcastle tomorrow.

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

Sarri declined to comment on persistent links with his former Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is on loan at AC Milan from Juventus.

"As you can understand very well, I cannot tell you where", he said. I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion.

Fabregas is closing in on finalising a move to Monaco, while Morata is a target for the likes of Atletico Madrid and Sevilla.

Sarri also said: "I need a replacement".

'I see in him a really good player who would certainly be a good face to join us'. "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".
