Chelsea's Sarri backs Fabregas exit amid talk of Monaco switch

Striker Olivier Giroud (ankle) and winger Pedro (hamstring) could return for tomorrow's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Tottenham.

"Three is different but now he is ready". He can play, of course.

"Sometimes he will be on the bench, as Willian, as Pedro".

"Sad for everybody when you lose this kind of player, this kind of person, but I think everybody has to stand up and clap the hands for him because he deserves it".

After that game, Antonio Rudiger revealed that Hudson-Odoi has asked him about his experiences in German football with Stuttgart.

Bayern's initial bid for the player was rumored to be somewhere around €14.5 million, and they have had offers of both €23 million and €30 million declined since then.

Sarri insists the starlet has an important role to play in his side.

The 31-year-old's contract expires at the end of the season, with British media reporting the player is close to securing a move to AS Monaco this month.

Despite his pair of assists against Nottingham Forest, Hudson-Odoi's future at Chelsea is now in doubt.

Fabregas' departure would reduce the depth in midfield for Chelsea and Sarri has admitted that the club need to sign a replacement for the former Barcelona man, but did not confirm the club's interest in Barella.

Chelsea are willing to accept the offer - which does not include a buy-back clause per Sky Sports - should their last ditch efforts at convincing Hudson-Odoi to remain at Stamford Bridge prove unfruitful.

Let's hope that Hudson-Odoi's behaviour isn't a facade and he's genuinely focused on the task at hand for him at Stamford Bridge. "I want to only talk to him about the pitch, movements in the defensive phase and I'm very happy, because he's improving in the defensive phase a lot in the last months". "He is an English player, he is very young and I think he has a very good future here; with the England team and with Chelsea". We are wishing him all the best, because he deserves it.

'First of all, I want good players.
