Chelsea are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso in January in order to fund a move for West Ham United's Declan Rice.

Chelsea are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso during the January transfer window in order to raise funds to sign Declan Rice.

The Blues have long been linked with a move for Rice, who has starred for West Ham United and become an England regular since being released from the Chelsea academy at the age of 14.

However, West Ham are understood to be holding out for a bid of £80m for the midfielder - a fee which Chelsea could not afford during what was already a big-spending summer.

Football Insider reports that Frank Lampard is planning to renew his interest in Rice when the transfer window reopens, but that Chelsea must first secure at least two big-money sales in order to fund the move.

The Blues are therefore willing to listen to offers for Jorginho, Rudiger and Alonso, all of whom were linked with a summer move away but ultimately stayed at Stamford Bridge.

Jorginho has been a regular for Chelsea so far this season, but Rudiger and Alonso's first-team chances have been limited by summer arrivals Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell respectively.
