Chelsea are looking to offload German forward Andre Schurrle in the January transfer window as they look to free up funds to make a move for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.
Schurrle has been a bit-part player for the Blues this season and has been substituted at half-time on four occasions already this campaign.
This has led many to believe that the 24 year-old’s future at Stamford Bridge is in doubt, and with the Blues boasting a wealth of options in attack, it is hard to see Schurrle breaking into the first team on a regular basis anytime soon.
However, the German is determined to prove his worth at the club and force his way into Jose Mourinho’s plans.
“In a phase with less playing time, transfer rumours are always coming up,” he said.
“Of course I want to be on the pitch as much as possible and score goals for my club.
“In a team like Chelsea with many top players you have to prove yourself again and again.”
In spite of this, the Blues are already lining up Marco Reus as a possible signing, which would push Schurrle even further down the pecking order. Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado – also linked with a move to Manchester United – is another possible option for the London side.
