Blues prepared to allow both Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle to leave the club.
Chelsea are prepared to allow both Mohamed Salah and Andre Schurrle to leave Stamford Bridge during the course of the January transfer window, report the Telegraph, as the Blues look to raise the funds and make room in the squad for a move for exciting Fiorentina winger, Juan Cuadrado.
The Blues appear to be targeting the Colombian international, who has taken his fine form from the 2014 World Cup into the Serie A season with La Viola, as Jose Mourinho looks to shake up his squad and prepare Chelsea for the final title run in with closest rivals Manchester City, who they already have a five point lead over.
The report suggests that Chelsea are likely to have to meet Cuadrado’s £26.8m release clause in Florence if they are to prise him away, meaning that the sales of Salah and Schurrle could be made to help meet the financial cost of bringing Cuadrdo to west London.
Serie A side AS Roma are set to pay a six-figure fee for the privilege of taking Egyptian international Salah on loan until the end of the season, whilst Schurrle could return to the Bundesliga and Vfl Wolfsburg in a deal reminiscent of the sale of Kevin de Bruyne to The Wolves 12 months ago.
