Sarri: Chelsea need two signings in January

The German club have made multiple offers for Hudson-Odoi, including one this week of £35m. "If that's not the case, then we'll have to take a look, but for as long as he is here, he will continue to be a professional and he's not going to be a problem for me".

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Tuesday night, Sarri said: "Chelsea v Tottenham is a very hard match and also for them, so it will not be easy to win at Stamford Bridge but after this performance, if we are able to play on the same level I think that we can do it".

"Every coach thinks like me".

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".

He told beIN Sports: "He is one of the best (young players) in Europe. I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute".

He did say if Alvaro Morata leaves, with loan moves to Sevilla and Atletico Madrid mooted, Chelsea would need a replacement.

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

Willian was on Thursday linked with Barcelona but Sarri said: "Willian for us is really very important".

Sarri declined to comment on persistent links with his former Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is on loan at AC Milan from Juventus.

Maurizio Sarri has warned Tottenham Hotspur that they will face a hard test when they take on Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge in the return leg of their League Cup semi-final clash.

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. Bringing him back would have to be handled sensitively but it would hardly be impossible, given the player is reportedly keen to return, and PSG need to meet FFP obligations.
