Maurizio Sarri Confirms He Wants Two New Players At Chelsea This January

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.

During Friday's training session at Cobham, Sarri's players, including hugely talented young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, were tested for their reaction speed.

"As you can understand, I cannot tell you where".

Sarri said he had recommended to Chelsea that two players be signed, but declined to say their positions.

'Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team and the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world. "So they didn't respect our club, I think". "I think that is normal because in a club you have time to organise a team, but in the national team you have no time so it is very hard to see an organised team in the Euros or World Cup".

"Of course if he was to go to another club then we need a replacement", he said.

The Blues have been linked with AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, who Sarri worked with successfully at Napoli.

Karl-Anthony Towns Stunned By Tom Thibodeau's Firing
It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12. Hoiberg was most recently the coach of the Chicago Bulls , but was sacked from his post in December.

"But I don't know anything about the market day by day or minute by minute".

However, Sarri did effectively confirm it by stating that he wants replacements brought in for Fabregas and striker Alvaro Morata should they leave.

"It's normal", Sarri said. "But I don't need an important player like Cesc unhappy here".

Nevertheless, Sarri said on Thursday: "Alvaro has trained for one day with the rest of the lads so we will have to wait and see how he is".

"Because in this moment in Europe there are 300 players involved in the market and they need to think only to the next match otherwise it's impossible to play".

"Willian for us is really very important".

"I am very happy with the player and would like to have him in the future".
