Chelsea are prepared to offload Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas when the transfer window reopens in the New Year. The 29-year-old is deemed surplus to requirements under Antonio Conte.

Fabregas has yet to start a Premier League game for the Blues this season, and signs are his situation will remain the same with Conte not in favour of his services.

N'Golo Kante has occupied the holding midfield role under the Italian coach with Nemanja Matic and Oscar playing ahead of him, and this is likely to be the first-choice selection unless an injury crisis prevails.

According to The Express, the former Arsenal man will be shown in the exit door this winter with Juventus and Inter Milan among the leading clubs vying for his services.

Juventus are on the search for a replacement for Paul Pogba who opted to return to Manchester United on a world-record deal. Meanwhile, Inter Milan, backed by new Chinese owners, are ready to spend big in order to attain Champions League football next season.
