Experience

While Quincy Promes looks to be an exciting potential addition on paper, he has never played in any of the top five leagues in European football and bringing him to St Mary’s would be a big £30m risk.

The same can’t be said for Schurrle, who has played in the Bundesliga for the majority of his career and has Premier League experience with Chelsea too, for whom he scored 14 goals in 65 games despite the majority of those outings coming from the substitutes’ bench.

The 27-year-old was also part of Germany’s World Cup winning squad in 2014 – providing the assist for Mario Gotze’s goal that saw his nation lift the famous trophy – and he has scored 22 goals in 57 caps for his country.
