Sarri frustration over Chelsea transfer policy continues to grow

Arjen Robben believes Chelsea teen Callum Hudson-Odoi needs to take his "chance" amid interest in Bayern Munich to acquire the attacker.

During Friday's training session at Cobham, Sarri's players, including hugely talented young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, were tested for their reaction speed.

"I didn't see anything in the World Cup", Sarri said. "It depends what the club decides to do, but I do not know anything about the transfer market", the Chelsea stated.

But Gazzetta dello Sport is now reporting that Juventus have told Chelsea that they will require them to pay the previously agreed transfer fee of £32m if they are to sanction Higuain's move to West London. "In my opinion, we need two players", he said.

"Of course if he was to go to another club then we need a replacement", he said.

Sarri is demanding a replacement if Cesc Fabregas' move to Monaco materialises and, now, also if Alvaro Morata is allowed to leave this month. I am happy with the player because he is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase.

He's a player Sarri knows well having worked with him at Napoli and the club are known to be on the lookout for a new striker to replace Alvaro Morata who appears to be reaching the end of his time with Sarri.

"Because in this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think only to the next match otherwise it's impossible to play".

Hudson-Odoi has only made one substitute appearance in the Premier League this season but has starred in cup competitions for the Blues. I think it is a great opportunity for him to do that'.

Hudson-Odoi is available to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday, but Sarri said he would monitor the 18-year-old's condition after noticing fatigue this week.
