Defender Papy Djilobodji could join Werder Bremen on loan - after playing just one minute for Chelsea.
The 27-year-old defender signed from Nantes in August, but his solitary appearance came in the Capital One Cup at Walsall in September, when used as a late substitute.
Werder Bremen chief executive Thomas Eichin told Bild: "We are in negotiations."
Chelsea have declined to comment.
Former Blues boss Jose Mourinho admitted the Senegal defender was signed on a recommendation.
But despite Chelsea's defensive lapses this season, neither Mourinho nor his successor Guus Hiddink, the caretaker boss, has fielded Djilobodji in a Premier League game.
