Chelsea send scouts for Bayer Leverkusen forward

Published Add your comment

Chelsea watched Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle in action last weekend as they weigh up a move for the German international in January, reports Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old, who can also operate as a winger, is a long-term target for the Blues, and fits the profile of players the club are trying to recruit, with a similar playing style to the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar.

Having been linked with a move for Schurrle during the summer, the forward could finally make the move to Stamford Bridge in the New Year, with Chelsea keen to bolster their attacking options, with doubts surrounding the long-term futures of Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge.

Chelsea announced this morning that they had parted company with manager Roberto Di Matteo, following last night's 3-0 defeat against Juventus in Turin, which has left the Blues on the brink of a Champions League group stage exit.

However, the Italian's departure is unlikely to impact on the club's intentions to sign Schurrle, with Russian owner Roman Abramovich ready to test Bayer Leverkusen's resolve with a big-money offer in the forthcoming transfer window.
