Chelsea are willing to release Florent Malouda on a free transfer this month in an attempt to reduce their wage bill.

Reports have suggested that Chelsea have yet to receive an offer for French midfielder Florent Malouda.

The 32-year-old has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge this season and has been forced to train with the Under-21 side.

Malouda rejected an offer from West Ham United in the summer but his lack of playing time means that he has failed to attract any clubs in the January transfer window.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are now willing to let the winger leave on a free transfer this month in an attempt to get his £75,000-a-week wages off the club's payroll.

Malouda's current contract expires in June.
