Juventus are reportedly planning to launch a last-minute raid to snatch Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi from under the noses of Bayern Munich.

"I don't think so, because he is an English player".

As Cesc Fabregas prepares to leave Chelsea, a player at the other end of his career has been urged to stay at Stamford Bridge and start fighting for a regular starting place in the team.

Sarri - who said last month that Chelsea's policy of offering only one-year extensions to players over 30 was a sticking point in talks with Fabregas and David Luiz - believes Fabregas should accept a two-and-a-half-year contract at Monaco.

Bayern Munich clearly want the Englishman and have already had three bids turned down for the teenager in the January transfer window, and it's only January 8th.

Sky Sports are reporting that the German Giants have tabled a fourth bid of £35 million for the England U19 global, which includes no buy back option - something fellow Bundesliga side RB Leipzig had been prepared to include in any deal.

"To stay here is better for him", Sarri said.

'He played like a player of 25 or 26 years. I have seen him every day in training, he has been very normal.

"I know only that for me he is a very important player".

He has insisted he will not sign a new contract and wants to play in the Bundesliga.

The Englishman proved his effectiveness against Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon, providing two superb assists for Alvaro Morata in a man of the match display. A very good match with application, very good in the defensive phase, but he has been completely normal.

"You know very well the situation". "Sometimes he will be on the bench - as Willian, as Pedro - but now I can start to consider him at the same level".
