A total of six Chelsea players could be let go off in the January transfer window, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.
Frank Lampard has not been able to bring in any new signings since he took over at Stamford Bridge due to a FIFA transfer ban but that has now been lifted.
And Chelsea are expected to be busy in January as Lampard looks to strengthen his squad to help continue their good start in the Premier League and Champions League.
But as a consequence the Blues could also be letting several players leave the club to make room for any incomings, says Sheth.
When asked who could leave Chelsea, Sheth named left-back duo Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri.
Also on the list were midfielder Ross Barkley and winger Pedro, as well as strikers Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi.
“The left-back area is one Chelsea and Frank Lampard haven’t cracked yet,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.
Chelsea currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League and have been drawn to play German champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16.
