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

Earlier this week, sources told ESPN FC that Chelsea were prepared to report Bayern to Federation Internationale de Football Association if evidence of an illegal approach to Hudson-Odoi or his representatives was found, having been angered by the club's public pursuit of the academy graduate.

Any team in the Premier League, outside the top six at least, would have Hudson-Odoi tomorrow and he would play every week. I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion. "My opinion is important for the club, but I can not tell you my opinion".

Bayern have also confirmed they want him, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: "All I can say about Callum Hudson-Odoi is that I think he's a good player and he's a player who we have a great interest in". Lampard has admired Hudson-Odoi's performances from afar and hopes the England Under-19 global is still a Chelsea player when the January transfer window closes.

"Then it depends on the club decision".

The Blues have been linked repeatedly for a move with Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain, the Juventus striker who is now on loan at AC Milan.

We can only speculate that it'll be a midfielder to replace Alvaro Morata and a striker to brush aside the misfiring Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

"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.

"Of course, if Morata will go to another club we need a replacement".

The Blues lost to Tottenham in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday and Sarri admitted to having a far-than-ordinary superstition.

"The rest is up to him and his brother, his agent, who's talking to Leonardo, and I hope that he stays for as long as possible".

Maurizio Sarri has said he did not watch a single World Cup match this summer because he does not believe there is anything to learn from worldwide football.
