Chelsea are reportedly waiting on four players to leave the club before the winter transfer window is over.
Asmir Begovic, Michy Batshuayi, Charly Musonda and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all seeking moves away from the club – either permanently or on loan, as they feel it would further their careers more.
None of the above players have really seen much action this season, and Begovic would like to leave on a permanent basis, with offers coming in for him, yet the other three are all young players, and would be more likely to go out on loan this season and then return to the club either next season or the season after.
No new players
One thing Conte is not looking to do is bring in any new players this winter – something that has shocked a few people given his lack of options up top, and the reported issues with Diego Costa.
Fernando Llorente has been linked with the Blues, but with no news on that front, it could well be the case that Batshuayi is forced to stay at the club – or Pedro plays as a false nine when Costa is unavailable.
