Chelsea are reportedly facing the prospect of losing three of their most exciting academy youngsters to Premier League rivals.
It is understood one of the three players has already bid farewell to the Blues as he is not keen to stay at the club.
The Athletic reports the three academy graduates include Valentino Livramento, Lewis Bate, and Myles Peart-Harris.
The players have just one year left on their respective contracts at Stamford Bridge and have already set their sights on quoting the London club having turned down offers to extend their deals.
Among the three, it is Bate who has come closest to breaking into the senior team after he was named on the bench against Sheffield United and Bayern Munich last season.
However, Metro UK claims the 18-year-old is not convinced about earning first-team football and has since informed Chelsea of his desire to join a club that can provide a pathway to regular first-team action.

The teenage sensation is expected not to fall short of options, with West Ham United, Leeds United, Liverpool, Leicester City, and Brighton have all shown interest in him but it is Leeds who are in the driving seat to land his services.
Peart-Harris, meanwhile, is believed to be on the verge of moving to Brentford and has already bid farewell to his teammates.
The promising midfielder was the joint-highest goalscorer in Chelsea’s youth team last season, bagging an impressive 11 goals in just 23 appearances.
