       Gordon Strachan and Curtis Davies discuss Callum Hudson-Odoi's position at Chelsea and why he should leave

Hasan Salihamidzic, the Bayern sporting director, said earlier this week that Hudson-Odoi was a player they "would definitely like to have" after they made a bid of £35m for the 18-year-old.

"It is not professional for Bayern Munich to talk about wanting Callum Hudson-Odoi as he is under contract at Chelsea", Sarri told the press ahead of his sides trip to Newcastle tomorrow.

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.

They are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea, so they didn't respect our club I think.

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.

Head coach Sarri wants the Blues to bring in striker Higuain, who played under him at Napoli and is now on a season-long loan at AC Milan from Juventus.

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

Sarri said he had recommended to Chelsea that two players be signed, but declined to say their positions.

"As you can understand very well, I cannot tell you where", he said.

However, Sarri did effectively confirm it by stating that he wants replacements brought in for Fabregas and striker Alvaro Morata should they leave. "But I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

"It's insane to have a market of 30 days in this moment of the season, because we play every three days, so we need rest", Sarri added. "I think at the moment my opinion is important for the club but of course I can not tell you 100% of my opinion".

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