Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri SLAMS Callum Hudson-Odoi claim

Sarri wants Chelsea to buy Higuain but admits striker ‘needs to improve’

"He has to improve physically, mentally, but I think also he will be able to be very useful for us in the last part of the season", Sarri said of Higuain, who has scored three goals in eight league appearances for Chelsea.

"I think he needs time to improve his physical condition and time to be suitable for the Premier League".

Chelsea's Italian boss called on his squad to ignore their rivals' results and chase as many wins as possible, starting against West Ham on Monday night.

Sarri continues to have only fleeting contact with Roman Abramovich, whose commitment to the club remains unswerving despite confirmation the owner has stopped paying up front for his £1m-a-year corporate box at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi started his first league game against Brighton and Hove Albion last time out, and Sarri suggested that he could soon earn his second. It was a problem also for (Luis) Suarez. The Chelsea ace may also may worth backing to find his way into the referee's book having done so on no fewer than seven occasions this season.

Sarri said: "It's not easy in the first months to play in the Premier League".

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed he wants Chelsea to keep Gonzalo Higuain past the end of this season, despite dropping the striker for the victory over Brighton. "I think he has time for improvement", Sarri said, according to Sky Sports.

When asked if he would like Giroud to stay at the club next year, Sarri said: "Yes, of course".

The Argentine striker, 31, was duly signed on loan from Juventus in January with a view to a permanent move this summer. The Hammers lie 11th in the Premier League and looked like a team who were on the beach during their terrible display at home to the Toffees. And so if they are able to improve we will be probably a better team in the future.

Chelsea play an open style of football and I foresee the Hammers benefiting from that by creating opportunities. "We have to play every three days, so we need both".
