Chelsea are prepared to bid £12million plus Kevin de Bruyne to Bayer Leverkusen in order to sign Andre Schurrle, reported The Sun.

The German club want to sell the forward for the right price, and media reports earlier today suggest that the 22-year-old will join the Blues next season.

The star forward has seven goals from 21 caps for the German national team.

After being thwarted twice in his attempts to bring Schurrle to the Premier League last summer, Chelsea chief Roman Abramovich believes sweetening the deal by offering de Bruyne will ensure the German’s move to Stamford Bridge.

Belgium international De Bruyne, who has been on a season-long loan at Werder Bremen, has given an impressive performance in the Bundesliga, tallying six goals and seven assists 27 games.

Dortmund have expressed an interest in De Bruyne, but given Chelsea’s interest in Schurrle, Leverkusen is the 21-year-old Belgian‘s most likely destination.
