Chelsea star Andre Schurrle has verbally agreed to join Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg, according to The Guardian.
In fact, Schurrle’s agent Ingo Haspel has revealed that he expects the transfer to be completed later today.
Schurrle has endured a tricky time under Blues boss Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge this term as he's struggled for playing time at the Premier League leaders.
On his way
However, with the close of the transfer window on the horizon, it appears that he's set to join Wolfsburg, who currently sit in second place in Germany's elite division.
Speaking about the Blues winger to Germany’s SID agency, Haspel said: “Should go through on Friday”.

“There are still a few things to discuss, but we’re no longer talking about figures,” Haspel added.
The same report has in fact suggested that the World Cup winner is set to depart the Bridge in a deal worth £22.5 million, which would ultimately make him Wolfsburg’s most expensive player in their history.
There's no doubt about it, Schurrle, at 24-years-old, still has a bright future ahead of him, but has failed to prove himself of on English soil of late, with the likes of Willian, Eden Hazard and Co. ahead of him in the pecking order.
And, with Schurrle's transfer seemingly imminent, it appears that Chelsea are ready to secure the services of Colombian ace Juan Cuadrado. The report has suggested that the Blues will have to pay as much as £26.8m for the Fiorentina ace, as Mourinho goes in search of success in the second half of the season.
There's no doubt about it, despite the huge transfer fee, Cuadrado would prove quite the coup for the Stamford Bridge outfit. The winger has enjoyed a fine spell of late, having proved his credentials at this past summer's World Cup in Brazil.
The Chelsea boss will currently be focussing on this weekend's Premier League title showdown with champions Manchester City. The Blues can move eight points clear of their rivals if they're able to secure all three points on home soil tomorrow evening.
