Chelsea vs Leeds: Lampard ready to sell two defenders
Chelsea will listen to offers for Antonio Rudiger and Fikayo Tomori in January, as manager Frank Lampard seeks to reduce the centre-backs at the club, ESPN reports.
Both players almost left Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Tottenham and West Ham United enquired about Rudiger, while Everton were in advanced talks to sign Tomori on loan.
However, both deals collapsed as Rudiger was reluctant to play for another London club.
Chelsea also delayed allowing Tomori leave and the player eventually chose to stay and fight for his place amid a late loan offer from West Ham.
Both Rudiger and Tomori were looking to win over Lampard and force their way into the first-team picture.
But Kurt Zouma and summer signing Thiago Silva have formed an impressive partnership, starting four of the last five Premier League games together, conceding just one goal.
