Tottenham refuse to scrap Chelsea star links

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has refused to rule out a surprise move for Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle.

The German winger starred for his nation during their successful World Cup campaign last summer, but his role in Jose Mourinho’s side has been limited this season.

This has led to suggestions that he could be sold this month, with Wolfsburg understood to be in talks to take him back to his homeland before next week’s deadline passes, while there have even been suggestions of a swap deal for Dortmund’s Marco Reus.

And when asked about Schurrle’s situation, Pochettino refused to rubbish a shock swoop for his services:

“There are a lot of rumours at this time of year, but we must focus on this game, and after analyse each situation differently,” he is quoted by The Express.

Spurs were linked with Schurrle as far back as late last year, with the player’s situation having been unclear for much of this season.

Although a winger, the ex-Bayer Leverkusen man is able to play as a striker, with his pace a useful weapon.
