Chelsea are prepared to part ways with Kurt Zouma when the transfer window reopens this summer.
He has made only five league starts under the German, and The Telegraph claims that he could be offloaded.
The Blues are planning to sign a world-class centre-back this summer, and they have their sights on Raphael Varane.
Varane has 14 months left on his Real Madrid contract, and he is prepared to pursue a new challenge.
He is reportedly valued at around £63m, and the Blues could face competition from rivals Manchester United.
Aside from Zouma, the Blues are anticipating the departure of Fikayo Tomori, who is currently on loan at AC Milan.
Milan have second thoughts over activating the buy clause, but the Blues are still expected to part ways with Tomori.
Tomori was previously on the radar of Everton last summer.
