Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking more than a little bit impressed with the news from the Daily Mail that the club are moving closer in their chase for Andre Schurrle.
The 22-year-old forward has been a target of the Blues for some time now and such is their determination to land the player, it has even been claimed that a pre-contract agreement has been put in place between Chelsea and the Bayer Leverkusen player already. An offer is thought to have been made but the details and finer points are yet to be hammered out.
Chelsea are determined not to let the player slip through their fingers after seeing a move fail to occur last summer and now Bayer general manager Wolfgang Holzhauser has claimed that: “Andre Schurrle has probably signed a pre-contract deal with Chelsea.
“It all depends on whether we let him go. We have received a concrete offer for a fee which we are considering.
“But the price alone is not decisive. We must also have alternatives, which we don’t have yet.”
Is it simply a case of dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s for Schurrle? Let us know your thoughts below.
