Chelsea could look to sell up to three players in January, as Thomas Tuchel looks to trim his squad even further, with Ross Barkley Lewis Baker and Charly Musonda all potential departures.
Barkley did make the starting line-up for the match against Burnley on Saturday, but is surplus requirements and could attract interest from several Premier League clubs, among them Newcastle United.
Baker is out of contract in the summer, and, despite once tipped to have a bright future, is not currently part of the first-team squad.
Meanwhile, Musonda, finds himself in a similar situation with his career in recent years blighted by injury.
He has recently returned to full fitness after two years on the side lines, but it is accepted that hs future now lies away from West London.
It is hoped that collectively the three could raise up to £17 million in transfer fees,
