Six players who have decided to leave Chelsea this season

Some Chelsea player have decide to leave Stamford Bridge this season. The players side they have their own person reason why they plan to leave this season.

The Blues will have decisions to make over the course of January.

The January transfer window is open and with the ban lifted, Chelsea could have players coming in and out this month.

Frank Lampard has made it clear that he is willing to bring in players if they can add to the quality that he has in the squad already.

But that is not the only issue for the Blues boss, with several players whose contracts are running out or might want to move on for more playing time.

This is the big one for Lampard with the Brazilians contract running out in the summer and negotiations ongoing with the club.

The 31 year old is hoping for a two-year deal from the Blues and Lampard is keen for the winger to put pen to paper for the short-term future.

If he does not then there is a case for Willian to move on and there will be clubs interested in taking him on.

Olivier Giroud

There is no doubt Olivier Giroud is going to be moving on from Chelsea in 2020, but it remains to be seen if it will be in January or the summer.

The 33 year old wants out this month ahead of the Euros, but it will only be if the club have a replacement to bring in beforehand.

Giroud was excellent in the Europa League winning run, but he is going to play little in the rest of the campaign.

Pedro

Pedro might also have featured in his final Chelsea game during the FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon.

His contract runs out in the summer and the Blues would be ready to get some money out of him, rather than the Spaniard leaving for free.

Marcos Alonso

Alonso has been in and out of the side this season, mainly being used when Lampard has gone for three at the back.

The 29 year old has a contract that runs out in 2023, but has been constantly linked to a move away from the Blues.

Lampard could look to move him on and bring in a replacement who fits the profile of defender he is looking for.

Marco van Ginkel

Its been a frustrating time for Marco van Ginkel with injuries taking over his career with Chelsea over the past couple of seasons.

The 27 year old is currently recovering from another long-term injury, and with a contract running out in the summer it is likely he will move on.

Willy Caballero

Willy Caballero has been the back-up goalkeeper for the past two seasons, and he has done a pretty good job when called upon.

The 38 year old is currently going on a yearly contract, which will run out in the summer, so it is likely Chelsea will aim for another replacement to become Kepas back-up in the summer.

Michy Batshuayi

It is a similar situation to Giroud, as the Belgian will only move on if Lampard is able to find a replacement to keep the numbers in the squad.

Batshuayi has not really won the trust of the Blues boss, and even though he is back up right now it is unlikely he will be the long term option.
