Four more ready to be transferred
Chelsea will listen to offers for a further four senior players in January as owner Roman Abramovich backs Andre Villas-Boas to rebuild the club. Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Jose Bosingwa and Paulo Ferreira are to be made available for transfer. Drogba and Kalou scored in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Newcastle but are out of contract next year and free to sign a pre-contract deal with a foreign club in January. The Ivorian strikers are also destined for the Africa Cup of Nations, which starts on January 21 and could rule them out for up to six weeks of the season. A lucrative move to the Middle East is understood to appeal to Drogba, who is 34 in March but will not be short of offers to extend his career. Arsenal and Liverpool have shown interest in Kalou.
