Romelu Lukaku and Daniel Sturridge have both clarified their futures at Chelsea as pressure mounts on Andre Villas-Boas, with the former admitting he may leave the club on loan, and the latter committing to the Blues.
Lukaku was purchased by the club last summer, just as Villas-Boas took over the reins at Stamford Bridge. But since the move, the 18 year old has made just 10 appearances for the side and is yet to score.
And as selection gets all the more tougher for places on the Belgium side, Lukaku believes that a loan spell might help his development.
"It is said that the clubs are lining up to loan me and that is true," he told Voetbal International.
"I even heard that Anderlecht want me back. The club that wants me most is my preference.
"I want to be No.1 for Belgium, but our other strikers are not standing still. Something has to change."
Lukaku also commented that Villas-Boas is not the reason for him wanting to leave the club, explaining: "Do not get me wrong, I have no problem with Andre Villas-Boas. He is just under a lot of pressure."
Sturridge, meanwhile, has often been talked about in relation to a possible exit from Chelsea, with the 22 year old also receiving limited game time amongst the likes of Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres.
But the forward insists his future lies at Stamford Bridge, and that he will keep working towards challenging the best in the business for a regular starting spot.
"The manager has helped me a lot," he told Sky Sports. "He's playing me a lot so I can't complain. I've not had a Chelsea manager do that for me before.
"It's helped me so much because previously I've not had a chance to play week in and week out, except when I was on loan at Bolton.
"To play at one of the best clubs in the world and start every week is a dream come true. I love playing for Chelsea. Some of the stuff I've read about me asking for a contract is not true.
"I've not spoken to the club to ask for a new contract, or told them I'm unhappy. I'm just doing a job. Working hard. I'm not worrying about my contract. It's not true. I'm committed to Chelsea."
