But after the match Antonio Rudiger revealed that Hudson-Odoi has asked him about his experiences in German football, and Bayern are increasingly confident that they will be able to complete a deal for the 18-year-old this month.

Chelsea are prepared to file a complaint against Bayern Munich to Federation Internationale de Football Association if evidence is found of an illegal approach to Callum Hudson-Odoi or his representatives, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern's sporting director, confirmed the club "absolutely want to sign" Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday, angering Chelsea.

The west London club have received large criticism for entertaining the idea of offloading Hudson-Odoi, who represents one of the crown jewels of their successful academy, from which players rarely follow through a path into the first team.

"I wrote on Monday that they should be viewing him as part of their long-term future".

"As you know very well, I am not involved in the market".

"Now he must improve in movements without the ball, but he's working very well at the moment".

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.

The former Napoli boss said: "I think that it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea. But I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

The Blues now occupy the fourth spot on the Premier League table and they need to win this match in order to maintain that gap with Arsenal who sit fifth on the table.

"Of course if he was to go to another club then we need a replacement", he said. I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute'.

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