This is not because they want to leave – more than there is no place for them at the club, and in keeping with UEFA restrictions on the amount of foreign players allowed in a side, not to mention the FFP regulations, we certainly think if players are going to come in this winter, others have to leave.
With that in mind, we have come up with a list of five players we think could be heading for the Chelsea axe this January.
Click on John Obi Mikel to see who else we think could be heading for the boot at Chelsea.
Chelsea fans. Are there any other players you would like to boot out the club? Is there anyone you want to keep? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.
