The club is committed to bringing through a first-team player from their widely-admired academy, with Hudson-Odoi looking like being the first to make that leap since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.

"We're just taking it game by game but hopefully we can achieve it". I think that he can do better.

"I am happy with the player because is improving, improving a lot in the defensive phase".

I just think England's success at last summer's World Cup, the fact Gareth Southgate is building around young players and the performances of the younger age squads, the narrative has changed. "In my opinion, we need two players", he said. First, you have to take the big step to achieve it.

"He is working very well and I'd like to have him in the future".

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

At some point surely he will move away permanently, perhaps to Wolves if that comes off, and I would imagine he'll have to take a pay cut.

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

But very few clubs actually do it in the Premier League, perhaps because they don't think they can give them the time they need, so the question I'll be asking the guys is - what needs to change? "You are better off getting your chance and if you get that chance then you have to take it", he said.

Chelsea have indicated they will offer Hudson-Odoi a five-year deal but at present specific financial details haven't been discussed because the focus has been on where the player can develop best.

I'm a massive advocate of players going overseas to learn because you get both more rounded footballers but also more rounded individuals.

The 18-year-old forward was promoted to the Blues senior team in 2017 under former boss Antonio Conte but has only made three topflight appearances for the club since then. I spoke with the club and the club knows very well my opinion.
