Chelsea have spent heavily since their takeover and they will need to raise funds through sales in order to comply with financial fair play regulations.
According to Football Insider, the Blues have identified Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount as the two players they could sell at the end of the campaign.
Apparently, Chelsea have incurred losses of up to £121m and they are hoping to sell the two midfielders for a fee of around £100m combined.

Kovacic has a contract with Chelsea until the summer of 2024 and he has not signed a new deal with them so far.
The 28-year-old is one of the best midfielders in England and it will be interesting to see where the midfeilder ends up next season.
The West London side sold Jorginho during the January window and they might lose N’Golo Kante on a free transfer in the summer. The departure of Kovacic will weaken the team even further.
Meanwhile, Mount has been linked recently with a move to Liverpool and he has refused to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge until his demands are met.
The England international is holding out for similar wages to that of his teammate Reece James.
It remains to be seen if the Blues manage the cash in on the two players and comply with the FFP regulations in the coming months.
And they will have to bring in adequate replacements to the club as well.
