Lampard urges Hudson-Odoi to snub Bayern Munich

Lampard urges Hudson-Odoi to snub Bayern Munich

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said on Wednesday that the 18-year-old has the qualities his side want amid reports of repeated bids for the winger.

"As you know very well, I am not involved in the market".

Chelsea, however, have not given up hope of changing Hudson-Odoi's mind, and Sarri - who picked the 18-year-old to start against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semifinal first leg at Wembley on Tuesday - hit out at Bayern.

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.

"In my opinion we need two players and then it depends on the club's decision, I think". The club knows my opinion. 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.




Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri would like to bring in two new players this January but he refused to be drawn on his top targets.

An agreement has already been reached between the Premier League club and Higuain, but they are looking to release him from his contract at AC Milan, where he is now on loan from Juventus.

"As you can understand very well, I cannot tell you where", he said. "I'm very happy with the player and I'd like to have him in the future". Lampard has admired Hudson-Odoi's performances from afar and hopes the England Under-19 global is still a Chelsea player when the January transfer window closes.

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement".

The Blues now occupy the fourth spot on the Premier League table and they need to win this match in order to maintain that gap with Arsenal who sit fifth on the table.

Cesc Fabregas has played his final game for the Blues and will be moving to Monaco sometime this week which means the Spaniard is not part of Sarri's plans during the Chelsea vs Newcastle game.
