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

Hasan Salihamidzic, the Bayern sporting director, said earlier this week that Hudson-Odoi was a player they "would definitely like to have" after they made a bid of £35m for the 18-year-old. "I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion", he said.

Marcos Alonso also believes Hudson-Odoi should reject Bayern and become a "great player" at Stamford Bridge.

"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.

As reported by Goal, the Bundesliga giants have tabled a fourth bid worth £35 million ($45m) for the 18-year-old winger, while they have offered him the No.10 shirt in an attempt to convince him to move to Germany.

Hudson-Odoi's contract expires in June 2020 and, as long as he remains unwilling to discuss an extension, Chelsea are mindful that his value will likely decrease significantly if he is kept at Stamford Bridge until the summer.

"They did not respect our club".

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

Chelsea are happy to allow Morata to leave, but they first want to source a replacement, which they have identified as Gonzalo Higuain.

He's a player Sarri knows well having worked with him at Napoli and the club are known to be on the lookout for a new striker to replace Alvaro Morata who appears to be reaching the end of his time with Sarri.

And three-time Premier League victor Keown can not believe the 18-year-old may be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge, which it has been claimed the player wishes to do.

"I am happy with the player because is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase. It's normal", Sarri said.

"I have told him the Bundesliga is a nice league".
