Peter Kenyon'whip-round raises questions about Newcastle takeover

The coach's options on the wing have improved with the return to fitness of Pedro and Willian, who on Thursday was the subject of reports that Barcelona had submitted an offer worth £50m to sign him, with Malcom heading the other way.

"Willian for us is really very important. I just told him to do whatever is best for him and whatever makes him feel comfortable".

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

Chelsea are reportedly not prepared to sell Callum Hudson-Odoi to Bayern Munich unless there is a buy-back clause included in the deal.

Sarri said: "I think that it's not professional, because they are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea".

However, former Norwich City star Dublin seems to think that he would be a great signing for the west London club.

"He is working very well and I'd like to have him in the future". I am happy with the player because he is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase.

The 18-year-old, who is only now getting his chance under Maurizio Sarri since Bayern demonstrated their interest in him, wants to join the Bundesliga champions as they are in a rebuilding process, with wide players Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery quitting at the end of the season. Anything else, we will see.

If you look at it logically Chelsea's financial plan makes sense, because they can buy a proven player who has more than 100 appearances for Borussia Dortmund for less than £60m and sell a player an unproven one for nearly £40m. He's got unbelievable qualities. He's very good, very talented, fast and good dribbling skills. In my opinion, he's a player we would definitely like to have.

"He is one of the best (young players) in Europe", Robben told beIN Sports.

As such, Hudson-Odoi barely featured, even on the bench, after starting the Community Shield.

Hudson-Odoi remains odds-on to make the move to Bayern with Betway listing him at 4/11 to seal the deal.

According to reports coming out from the Stamford Bridge, Hudson-Odoi has failed to pen a new deal with the club as his current deal expires in 2020.
