Marcos Alonso, Olivier Giroud and Pedro could all be set for January exits, according to reports.

Chelsea have been given the all clear to sign players in the winter window after the Blues were successful in their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to reduce their transfer ban.

Frank Lampard will be given a £150million transfer kitty and is reportedly keen on several signings, including Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.

But Goal claim three first-team regulars are eager to leave the club after falling out of favour under Lampard.

Alonso has not been included in Chelsea’s last five Premier League matchday squads and is a target for Inter boss Antonio Conte.

The Spanish full-back has grown unhappy at Chelsea, but Inter might struggle to lure him away from Stamford Bridge due to the £100,000-a-week wages he currently earns.

Chilwell is Lampard’s No.1 choice to take on the left-back berth at Chelsea and Barcelona are also credited with an interest in Alonso.

Giroud and Pedro are in a similar situation to Alonso. The attacking duo have managed just nine appearances in the Premier League this season between them.

With both their contracts expiring next summer, Giroud and Pedro will be free to speak to other clubs in January about a free transfer in the summer.

Pedro has been tipped for a move to America, while Giroud has been linked with a number of clubs in Italy and the MLS.

Giroud plays second fiddle to youngster Tammy Abraham and has started just two league games.

The Frenchman is keen for more game time with the European Championships next summer. Chelsea are believed to be open to Giroud leaving in January, if a club meets their £5million asking price.
