Tottenham are set to give former Chelsea player Andre Schurrle a Premier League lifeline as he looks to break away from Wolfsburg.

The World Cup winner is unhappy in the Bundesliga, and is eyeing up Champions League football with Spurs, according to reports brought to our attention by The Daily Mirror. 

Wolfsburg sit 8th in the Bundesliga and are unlikely to be playing European football at all next season, despite a recent win against Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ousted by Chelsea

His current manager, Dieter Hecking, is reportedly willing to sell the German international, and he could be a perfect fit at Tottenham.

Confusion reigned as to why Chelsea sold Schurrle in the first place.

He is an exceptionally creative player, and offers a lot of width, which suggests he will link up very well with Harry Kane if the move does go ahead.

He only left Stamford Bridge a year ago, but his discontent in his native country is fuelling speculation that he could soon be returning to London.

Spurs' reputation growing

It is yet another sign that Tottenham's new-found prowess is attracting top talent to the club.

Spurs are second in the Premier League and could cut the gap to just two points if Leicester lose at Swansea and Mauricio Pochettino's side defeat West Brom.

While the summer will primarily be about keeping hold of what they already have - including Pochettino and Kane, their main assets - chairman Daniel Levy is also ready to splash out to bolster the squad even further.

Schurrle is the kind of player who can take Spurs to the next level, and if he is a success at White Hart Lane, he will give them even more bragging rights over Chelsea than they are already enjoying.

Who should Spurs sign this summer? Have your say in the comments.
