Juventus are reportedly planning to launch a last-minute raid to snatch Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi from under the noses of Bayern Munich. And Hudson-Odoi, it seems, could become the next young English sensation to join the prestigious league that has emerged as the breeding ground for several young and talented footballers over the past decade or so.

Bayern Munich have failed with a bid to take Callum Hudson-Odi to the club this month, but could sign him from Chelsea in the summer, according to Sky Deutschland.

Hudson-Odoi looks ever more likely to be leaving Stamford Bridge but will Chelsea regret letting it get to this point? A very good match with application, very good in the defensive phase, but he has been completely normal.

Fabregas was emotional in appearing to bid farewell after Chelsea's win over Forest at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Ligue 1 club, now being coached by Fabregas' former Arsenal team mate Thierry Henry, are apparently not willing to pay what Chelsea are asking for a player whose contract ends in June this year. The manager's said that he wants him to stay, and there's a position there. I saw him every day in training.

"In this club there is a rule - the renewal for players over 30 is usually one year".

Earlier on Monday, Monaco boss Thierry Henry said he regularly speaks to his former Arsenal team-mate but did not confirm whether his club was signing Fabregas.

Victor of two FA Youth Cups with Chelsea, as well as the Under-17 World Cup with England, Hudson-Odoi made his first team debut last January in an FA Cup tie with Newcastle.

"Without Cesc we only have five so we need a replacement".

"In my opinion, he's a player who would fit in well at our club".

Sarri also told Chelsea fans to focus on supporting their team instead of directing chants at Spurs fans in Tuesday's tie.
