Sarri frustration over Chelsea transfer policy continues to grow

Share

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has urged rising star Callum Hudson-Odoi to turn down Bayern Munich's advances and continue his career at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri hopes Alvaro Morata, who is rumoured to be on his way out of the club, will be fit for their game against Newcastle United on Saturday.

On Fabregas, Sarri repeated his belief the midfielder should be allowed to go, adding: "I need a replacement, but I don't need a very important player like Cesc unhappy here".

Chelsea are reportedly desperate to acquire the signature of Gonzalo Higuain, although the deal remains complicated with both AC Milan and Juventus expected to be involved in the discussions.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) is out and Morata (hamstring) is doubtful when the Blues face Newcastle, with Sarri hinting Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen would drop to the substitutes' bench.

The Blues looks set to lose experienced midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Monaco soon and Sarri has already stated that he would like to sign a player to replace the Spain global. "We've played with each other at England".

Brown has been frustrated by team dynamics for a while but has not discussed a trade since the season ended, according to sources. TMZ caught up to the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and asked him about the possibility of Brown joining the team.

'Being close to Chelsea, I want him to stay there.

He told a press conference today: "As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market".

"Then it depends on the club decision". "But at the moment he is here, he has to think only to play".

Sarri's team is not yet capable of a title push, and while he doesn't believe that we are a million miles away, he has publicly stated the need for Chelsea to sign two players before the end of the month.

Sarri also said: "I need a replacement".

Meanwhile, Sarri also shot down rumours this week that winger Willian could move to Barcelona. "I think it's impossible to lose him in January", he said.
