Postado Janeiro 11, 2019

Chelsea will report Bayern Munich to Federation Internationale de Football Association if they find evidence that the Bundesliga champions have been "tapping up" Callum Hudson-Odoi, Goal can confirm. I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion.

On Wednesday, a source told ESPN FC that Hudson-Odoi had no plans to sign a new contract at Chelsea as Bayern await a response to their fourth bid for the 18-year-old, understood to be in the region of £35 million.

"He's a very interesting player that we really want to sign", he said.

'Then I don't know what to say. "I think at the moment my opinion is important for the club but of course I can not tell you 100% of my opinion".

Away from transfer matters, Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday when they face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri has refused to comment on Chelsea's pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain but says the club need two players during this month's transfer window.

The Blues have been linked repeatedly for a move with Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain, the Juventus striker who is now on loan at AC Milan.

Sarri, who celebrated his 60th birthday on Thursday, said he recommended Chelsea need to recruit two players, but declined to say their positions.

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

"Me and Callum are close friends", said Sancho, speaking from Dortmund's winter training camp in Marbella.

Sarri also confirmed that Cesc Fabregas was leaving Chelsea - he is expected to link up with his former team-mate Thierry Henry at Monaco. "He does not get the number that people expect but as a centre-forward, and as a team player, I have a lot of admiration for him". Lampard has admired Hudson-Odoi's performances from afar and hopes the England Under-19 worldwide is still a Chelsea player when the January transfer window closes.
