Maurizio Sarri says Callum Hudson-Odoi playing with maturity

Sarri said: "Odoi in the last week has been very normal".

Hudon-Odoi would like to establish himself as a first team player.

Hudson-Odoi is unhappy with the amount of playing time he has been given by Sarri and is refusing to extend a contract that has 18 months remaining, prompting interest from other clubs.

It's not quite a done deal yet, but all signs point toward Callum Hudson-Odoi becoming the newest Bayern Munich player within the coming days.

Despite having made just 11 senior appearances Bayern see Hudson-Odoi as the ideal replacement for ageing wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. Very good defensive phase, but very good'.

In his most recent outing, the highly rated youngster assisted both of Chelsea's goals in the 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Nottingham Forest.

The Ligue 1 club, now being coached by Fabregas' former Arsenal team mate Thierry Henry, are apparently not willing to pay what Chelsea are asking for a player whose contract ends in June this year. He has an offer for two years. "In my opinion, he needs to go".

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

"In this club there is a rule - the renewal for players over 30 is usually one year". "Of course we have very important players in the same position, so you want Willian on the bench I think?"

Sarri said that Fabregas suffered cramp against Forest and may not be available to face Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Wembley on Tuesday.

And Salihamidzic has confirmed that the club are keen on signing the winger, telling reporters at Bayern's winter training camp in Doha: "He's a very interesting player that we really want to sign".

"Without Cesc we are only five, so we are in trouble".

Sarri also told Chelsea fans to focus on supporting their team instead of directing chants at Spurs fans in Tuesday's tie.
