The two Chelsea stars likely to be sold in January

Chelsea will look to do some quick business in the January transfer window by selling Olivier Giroud and Pedro Rodriguez.

Giroud has made only six appearances for the Blues this season, and a single start in the Premier League.

Pedro, on the other hand, has been in the cold since the return of Callum Hudson-Odoi, and with Christian Pulisic back in the starting lineup, the former Barcelona man's time might be coming to an end.

The two players are some of their senior-most members of the side, and with their contracts running out in the summer, Chelsea might look to cash in on them than let them leave for free.

One other player that might be on the club's exit list is Marcos Alonso, but with the club having little cover in the left-back position, he can only be allowed to leave once the transfer ban has been lifted.

Frank Lampard and company are waiting on the outcome of the appeal on the transfer ban, with the hearing set for November 20. 

There's hope that the ban will be overturned and reduced to a single season ban, which will allow them to make additions in January. 

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell are some of the names that have been linked with the Blues.
