Liverpool & Tottenham to launch shock £25m Chelsea raids

Liverpool and Tottenham are readying shock £25m moves for Chelsea attacker Andre Schurrle in January, according to reports from The Express.

The German star only signed for the Blues last year from Bayer Leverkusen, and despite putting in some notable performances he is largely seen as a fringe player at Stamford Bridge.

Schurrle helped his Germany side to World Cup victory over the summer, but he still finds himself behind the likes of Willian and Eden Hazard in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order, which has prompted talk of moves away from west London.

This has alerted Liverpool and Spurs, whoa are both understood to be keen on the versatile forward.

Brendan Rodgers is known to be after reinforcements to get his Reds side firing once again, while Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino is also in a similar position.

Schurrle is also wanted in his homeland, with Dortmund thought to be eyeing him as a replacement for Marco Reus – who is wanted by Chelsea.
