Chelsea have agreed a deal with Bayer Leverkusen for Andre Schürrle, with Kevin de Bruyne heading in the opposite direction on loan according to the Bundesliga club's general manager.

SchürrleIt is understood  agreed terms with Chelsea some time ago, but the move was held up because of De Bruyne's desire to make the move to Borussia Dortmund.

However a breakthrough appears to have been made, with Wolfgang Holzhäuser telling the Rheinische Post newspaper that Leverkusen had come to an agreement over the 22-year-old.

We have reached an agreement with Chelsea," Wolfgang Holzhäuser told the Rheinische Post newspaper.

"They are going to buy André Schürrle for a specific fee and, in return, they will loan De Bruyne to us for a year for free.

"I expect Chelsea to stand by what has been agreed."

Schürrle is expected to join Chelsea for a fee of around £20 million.

The Leverkusen attacker is currently away on duty with Germany and he is expected to arrive in London to finalise his move when he is released by his country.
