However, they are not the only two, as the the report claims only a handful of Chelsea stars are considered to be fulfilling their earning their places in the squad by Mourinho and he is keen to make room for a number of January signings.
Inter Milan midfielder Freddy Guarin, St Etienne defender Kurt Zouma and former Chelsea flop now at Benfica, Nemanja Matic are all high on the Blues boss' transfer wishlist.
