A bid worth £30m plus add-ons for the England youth forward was rejected, prompting Bayern to return with a deal they feel matches Chelsea's valuation.

Maurizio Sarri does not think joining Bayern Munich would be a good move for transfer-linked Callum Hudson-Odoi, convinced he is best served by staying at Chelsea.

Hudson-Odoi was named in Chelsea FC's starting line up for Saturday's 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round.

Hudson-Odoi has impressed for Chelsea.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan grudging in praise of Newport County
Leicester have never won the FA Cup having been runners-up four times, the last in 1969. Later in the day, Newport County , 13th in League Two, beat Leicester City 2-1.

Napoli are not underestimating the threat Arsenal pose, especially with Barella hinting that he favours a move to the Premier League in the past.

The Chelsea boss revealed last week he was not aware the move was going ahead until it was done and with the 20-year-old United States global returning to previous club Borussia Dortmund on loan for the remainder of the season there has been no talks between the pair.

Sarri has given assurances to Hudson-Odoi that he will be getting more opportunities before the end of the season, and with Willian struggling to make any impact on Chelsea's flank, that promise is easier to deliver.

A little injury here and there and a little setback, but he's a fantastic player and I'm really happy to have him here. Adam Lallana is set to play, while Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi could also be given a run out, said the report.

"It's always hard to lose players, especially like him, because like I say he's a world-class player but also I understand it's part of the process, and if it's better for him and better for the club, we have to understand that". Their pursuit of Hudson-Odoi has been relentless, however.

"The potential is for him becoming a great player and now he has to improve".

He has now played 11 times for Chelsea and scored his first goal in the Europa League in November.
