Hijack: Wolves should swoop for Andre Schurrle

Hijack: Wolves should swoop for Andre Schurrle

According to the Daily Mail, Borussia Dortmund have given permission for Andre Schurrle to arrange a move away from the club.

The report suggests that the Bundesliga giants are hoping to offload the 27-year-old in an effort to raise funds for the capture of Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. Allegedly, this could result in a player plus cash deal between Dortmund and the Selhurst Park outfit.

Other clubs should still see this as an opportunity to sign the Germany international for themselves though.

Wolves boss, Nuno Espirito Santo, in particular, should be interested in bringing the Premier League winner to Molineux this summer.

The Breakdown

Shurrle, a World Cup winner in 2014, would be an ambitious target for Wolves. The club have gotten this far in recent times though precisely by signing hugely ambitious targets. The likes of Ruben Neves, Diego Jota, and Rui Patricio were all high profile signings, but Wolves were still able to get those deals over the line.

The arrival of Shurrle could mark the completion of Nuno’s attacking force heading into this Premier League campaign. If this deal were done, nobody would be looking forward to facing the top flight newcomers this term.

Schurrle, who is valued at £13.5 million by Transfermarkt, would bring versatility and depth to Wolves’ attacking contingent. Able to play through the middle or on either wing, the German would be guaranteed the regular football at Molineux that he has found hard to come by with Dortmund.

In return, Wolves would be guaranteed goals. If Nuno’s men truly are to take the Premier League by storm this season, then they’ll need all the goals they can get.
