Chelsea yet to make move for German ace

Andre SchurrleChelsea are keen on striker Andre Schurrle but have not made an offer as yet for the Bayer Leverkusen star, according to the Mirror.

Reports earlier this week suggested the Blues had made a concrete offer with a view to a summer transfer, but German side Leverkusen insist that as yet no bid has been received despite talks with Chelsea.

“I can confirm the talks in London,” said Leverkusen’s director of communications Meinolf Sprink.

“However, at this moment there is nothing on which to make a decision.”

It has also been speculated that Chelsea will offer Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who is currently on loan at Werder Bremen, in a player-plus-cash deal for forward Schurrle.

Schurrle has been capped 22 times for Germany, scoring 7 goals.  He can play a number of attacking positions, including on both wings, as an attacking midfielder, and striker.  Schurrle is known for his excellent stamina and desire to work for the team.

Chelsea have been looking for answers to their attacking woes this season, with Frank Lampard, Juan Mata, and Eden Hazard all scoring more Premier League goals than Fernando Torres, Chelsea’s top scoring striker.

Chelsea are said to be very reluctant to let Kevin De Bruyne leave, so perhaps Marko Marin, Chelsea’s £7 million winger, is a better option for the club.
