Chelsea’s negotiations for Nigeria international Victor Moses have broken down, so the Stamford Bridge club have turned their sights towards Germany international Andre Schurrle.


According to Metro, Roberto di Matteo was keen to acquire the services of Wigan winger Moses, but Latics owner Dave Whelan knocked back a £4million bid earlier in the summer.


Now the Blues are turning their sights towards Bayer Leverkusen forward Shurrle, who is currently away at Euro 2012 with the German national team.


Chelsea officials are reportedly ready to offer somewhere in the region of £7million for the 21-year-old, but the Bundesliga side are likely to want more than double that figure for a highly promising young player.


Roman Abramovich’s side may also have to compete with AC Milan for Shurrle’s signature.


Moses, according to the report, is keen to leave Wigan this summer, but Whelan has blamed this on the influence of the winger’s agent – a comment that has sparked an angry exchange between the two via media.
