Chelsea could be forced into selling goalkeeper Petr Cech, after failing to find a willing suitor for either Fernando Torres or John Obi Mikel.
The Daily Star are reporting that the Stamford Bridge outfit need to sell another player from abroad as the team currently exceeds the foreign-player quota.
With the recent return of club legend Didier Drogba, the Blues currently have 18 foreign players over the age of 21 in their official 25-man squad, meaning they must drop one star.
Cech has already been linked with an exit from the club this summer, following the return of rival keeper Thibaut Courtois from his three-year loan spell with Spanish Champions Atletico Madrid.
However, the Blues are not believed to be keen on letting the 32-year-old stopper leave the club quite yet, with manager Jose Mourinho still undecided on the identity of his number one stopper.
“From the group you are expecting us to have as a squad, I have to send one away because we have one extra foreign player,” Mourinho said.
“So from all these players, if you think all of them have to stay, you are wrong. One of them has to go.”
It’s understood clubs are being put off by Torres’ £20m price tag and are also unwilling to rival Chelsea’s £175,000-a-week wages, while Nigerian star Mikel has also failed to attract interest.
