Chelsea are reportedly open to letting Trevoh Chalobah leave the club this month as he nears a return to full fitness.
However, the 24-year-old is likely to depart on loan rather than a permanent move.
Chalobah has been sidelined since August due to a hamstring problem but is now close to recovery.
The potential loan move is seen as a way for Chelsea to balance their squad and comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
Several clubs, including Roma, Tottenham, and Bayern Munich, have been linked with an interest in Chalobah.
Roma has reportedly made initial inquiries for Chalobah and would be willing to take him on loan for the season.
Bayern Munich is also interested in a loan deal after failing to sign him in the summer.
Clearing Chalobah off the wage bill would provide Chelsea with more flexibility in the transfer market as they look to reinforce their squad.
The club is currently 10th in the Premier League table and is also open to selling Conor Gallagher, with Tottenham said to be interested.
