Hudson-Odoi, 18, has been linked with Bayern Munich in a £35million deal but Sarri has revealed he is frustrated with their approach, which has involved four separate offers.

Speaking about the Germans’ interest, Sarri said: “I think it is not professional.

“They are talking about a player under contract with Chelsea, so they didn’t respect our club I think.

“I am very happy with the player, he is improving a lot.

“He needs to move in some moments without the ball. I would like to have him in the future.”

Earlier this week, SunSport exclusively revealed Chelsea were yet to formally offer a new contract to Hudson-Odoi.

Bayern, who describe the teenager as having “unbelievable qualities”, are now waiting to see if a £35million bid will land him this January after the stalemate.

Recently, the Germans’ sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic claimed: “He is a player we have great interest in.

“He would fit in well at our club, he has unbelievable qualities.

“He is good at dribbling and has pace. He is a player we would definitely like to have.”

Meanwhile, Marcos Alonso has told Hudson-Odoi to stay at Stamford Bridge and fight for his place.
