Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia is determined to find buyers for a raft of fringe players.
Granovskaia has been tasked with offloading five players in January as they look to bring in more funds.
Declan Rice, of West Ham, remains a top target at Stamford Bridge but they will need some extra cash to do so, reports the Mirror.
Kepa Arrizabalaga remains the toughest, with a lack of suitors for the goalkeeper the Blues forked £72m out on just two years ago.
Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso, Danny Drinkwater and Baba Rahman are the others on the exit list.
However, finding clubs to cough up the cash is proving difficult as money is hard to come by for many teams across Europe.
Callum Hudson-Odoi bids will be blocked while Fikayo Tomori could be allowed to leave on loan.
