French star may find way out of Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda is set to find a way out of Stamford Bridge with Premier League strugglers keen to sign him in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
Malouda, who helped Chelsea win the Champions League last season, has not played a single game for the club this season and was not even given a shirt number in the 25-man Premier League squad.

The 32-year-old French international, who has been at Chelsea since 2007, was the subject of interest in the summer including from French side Lyon but his £80,000 a-week wage demands scuppers any move.
He will have to take a salary reduction if he is to join QPR’s relegation fight, where he would join international team-mate Loic Remy who made a goalscoring debut for the club in the 1-1 draw at West Ham on Saturday.
QPR manager Harry Redknapp is also hopeful of securing the signature of another Frenchman Yann M’Vila, although the Rennes midfielder has a host of suitors including Tottenham, Everton and Russian sides Rubin Kazan and Zenit St Petersburg.
Malouda has six months left on his contract at Chelsea and can leave on a free transfer in the summer.
