Reports in the Daily Mail confirm that Jose Mourinho’s side have edged closer to a move for the Colombian international, who is available at a similar price to Schurrle. The 26-year-old is expected to challenge Willian for his first-team spot on the right of midfield.
The Mail believes that both deals could be done in time to allow Cuadrado to make his Chelsea debut against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
Schurrle’s departure will bring to an end the player’s 18-month stay in West London, which saw him score 14 goals in 57 games. The World Cup winner has regularly impressed coming off the bench, but has struggled for consistency when used as a starter.
Wolfsburg have agreed personal terms with Schürrle and reportedly made a €27m bid for the Chelsea player, according to Kicker.
