Callum Hudson-Odoi watch: How he did for Chelsea against Tottenham

Hudson-Odoi has indicated that he wants to leave Stamford Bridge amid interest from Bayern Munich, who are keen to sign him.

But unlike his compatriots, who are now plying their trade in the Bundesliga, Hudson-Odoi's target will be to make himself a first-team regular at Bayern, with Arjen Robben set to leave the club at the end of the season while Franck Ribery's downfall has been rather evident.

But, after the teenager assisted twice in Chelsea's 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Nottingham Forest, the Italian appears to have changed his mind.

The Blues are said to be close to securing deals for Cagliari's Nicolo Barella and Zenit's Leandro Paredes, with Sky Sports reporting that the club are close to securing deals for both players. Because he is an English player, very young. "Pedro? I can play with only two wingers I think", added Sarri.

"We are lucky because our academy is very good. Go back and see how many games Steven Gerrard played when he was 18 years old, right?"

Cesc Fabregas is a true Premier League legend.

"We definitely want to sign him - he has the qualities which would fit very well into our team", Bayern's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic said on Wednesday at their winter training camp in Doha.

MAURIZIO SARRI has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay at Chelsea, believing he is ready for the Premier League.

Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard also expressed his opinions on the Spaniard's imminent move away from Stamford Bridge.

"In this club there is a rule - the renewal for players over 30 is usually one year". I think [it has been emotional] not just for him, for everybody.

Thierry Henry, Fabregas' former team-mate at Arsenal, is now Monaco boss.

Joining Marcotti on the podcast was Times journalist Matt Dickinson, and he continued: "I agree, [Hudson-Odoi has] still got plenty of time".

The Blues will hope to impress in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Tottenham on Tuesday, and take an advantage to the second leg. We don't need to think about the referee.

But Sarri acknowledged that Chelsea can not blame the technology for their loss, and instead should focus on their own performance.
