Chelsea are preparing to sell Olivier Giroud and Pedro in the January transfer window, according to reports.
Giroud has made just six appearances for Frank Lampard’s side. Pedro, meanwhile, has made eight appearances. Their contracts expire at the end of the season.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Chelsea are prepared to listen to offers for the players in the upcoming transfer window.
The report also claims that any decision will also hinge on whether Lampard will be able to sign replacements, as he does not want to lighten his squad.
The Blues’ appeal against a transfer ban by FIFA for breaking rules to sign youth players from abroad will be heard on November 20 at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The verdict due before the January transfer window opens after Chelsea have already served half of its one-year ban on registering new players.
