Premier League Tonight column: Hudson-Odoi and Chelsea's youth policy

"I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion", he said.

"He can do better because the potential is higher but he is really very important for us and it is impossible to lose him in January", said Sarri. "I'm very happy with the player and I'd like to have him in the future".

If you look at it logically Chelsea's financial plan makes sense, because they can buy a proven player who has more than 100 appearances for Borussia Dortmund for less than £60m and sell a player an unproven one for nearly £40m.

"It's insane. I think the January market window would be better for one week or 10 days, no more".

"They didn't respect our club, I think". We all know about Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Mo Salah leaving in their younger days because there were more experienced, established players there and ready to play.

Youngster Hudson-Odoi, who is heavily linked with a £45m switch to Bayern Munich, could maintain his place as Sarri is doing everything possible to ensure the England global stays at Stamford Bridge beyond this season.

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.

"He is one of the best (young players) in Europe, " Robben told beIN Sports.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has urged Callum Hudson-Odoi to stay. In my opinion we need two players.

Eden Hazard will continue in his unfamiliar "false 9" position while Barcelona target Willian gets another opportunity to prove his doubters wrong.

In the past, the Blues have lost a host of talented players due to not having a buy-back clause in their contracts, including Romelu Lukaku and Hudson-Odoi, it seemed, would be the next one following their footsteps.

Hudson-Odoi remains odds-on to make the move to Bayern with Betway listing him at 4/11 to seal the deal.

"The Chelsea academy graduate is now just 4/5 to join the German champions during this transfer window, with a stay at Stamford Bridge priced at even-money".

The 18-year-old winger, whose contract expires in June 2020, has been linked with a big money move to the Bundesliga giants.
