German star waiting on Chelsea contact

Published Add your comment

Bayer Leverkusen starlet Andre Schurrle has cooled rumours of a switch to Chelsea by admitting that the London club are yet to contact him, according to Setanta Sport.

However, the German international has hinted that he would be interested in a move should the Blues put in a bid. The Bundesliga star has 12 caps for Germany and was recently named in their preliminary squad for Euro 2012.

Chelsea may move for a striker in the summer, should Didier Drogba decide to leave Stamford Bridge and Romelu Lukaku opt to get first-team football on loan.

The 21-year-old Leverkusen forward has been strongly linked with a switch to the Blues, but Schurrle insists no contact has been made yet.

"I and my agent have not had any contact [with Chelsea] so we will just have to wait," said the German international. "We will see how interesting it is when it becomes concrete."

Schurrle's fellow countryman Marko Marin has already swapped the Bundesliga for the Premier League, and Schurrle could join Marin at the end of the season in west London. The former Werder Bremen attacking midfielder has signed for Chelsea as the Blues look to conclude their transfer business before Euro 2012 kicks off.

However, much could depend on whether the Stamford Bridge outfit clinch Champions League football this season. Chelsea cannot finish higher than sixth in the Premier League but could still qualify for next year's competition if they beat Bayern Munich in the final on 19 May.
