Chelsea are apparently willing to listen to offers for midfield pair Oscar and Juan Cuadrado this summer in order to help them fund a move for Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, according to the Daily Star.

The Blues are aware that they face some stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City for the young England international, and need to sell before they can make any big moves.

Jose Mourinho had previously stated that he wanted to keep Oscar in his plans, after chipping in with eight goals and seven assists this term, but having fallen away as the campaign has wore on he will now be prepared to sell should the right offer come along.

Cuadrado, on the other hand, has been an unmitigated disaster since his £26m arrival from Fiorentina in January.

The Colombian has failed to live up to the high standards set by Mourinho, and could be on the first plane out of London should someone make a suitable offer.
