The Danish centre back was named the Blues' young player of the year last season after what appeared to be a breakthrough year in which he made 27 league appearances.

The 22-year-old has been a regular starter under former manager, Antonio Conte but since the arrival of Sarri in the summer, the Denmark global has not played a single minute in the Premier League.

"I can not stand to have so much patience again. I do not know, but it's up to me to figure that out", Christensen told Danish publication BT.

A report in the Telegraph now claims that Chelsea - who are believed to owe the 49-year-old around £9m as a result of his sacking - are monitoring his next move closely, with Conte having been linked with moves to Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in recent days.

But it is clear that it is not a good situation for me. But it is clear that it is not a good situation for me.

"It has been difficult to get into the team, and when we get the good results that we now do, it will only be even harder". It's hard for me personally, but for the team it looks great'.

"I had looked forward to getting our new manager".

The 22-year-old defender spent two years on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach before returning to become a key member of Antonio Conte's back three in 2017-18.

Christensen joined Chelsea in 2012 when he was 16 years old on a free transfer from Bronby IF.

"We used the ball a lot and they wanted to play football. You get put in hard situations in Germany - every team likes to press high and you can even end up staying one vs one the whole game, so you have to think a lot and prepare yourself".
