Stamford Bridge side set sights on Bundesliga youngster.
Chelsea chairman Roman Abramovich weighs up £15.5million offer for Germany forward Andre Schurrle
Chelsea are considering a bid of between £14million and £15.5million for the German international striker André Schürrle as Roman Abramovich continues to ponder the extent of his squad rebuilding over the summer.
Having already signed Marko Marin last month it appears clear that Roman Abramovich is more than happy to conduct Chelsea transfer business without the need to wait until he has appointed a permanent successor to Andre Villas-Boas, indeed Roberto Di Matteo admitted he had little to do with the move to sign the talented winger and perhaps the interim boss is similarly not involved in this move to snap up another talented German.
Schurrle only moved to Bayer Leverkusen in the summer but having seen his new side fail to retain their spot in the Champions League for next term the former Mainz man may well be tempted to consider offers especially one from Chelsea who could no doubt make him a very lucrative offer.
The 21 year old has managed only six goals in the Bundesliga this term but has impressed greatly on the international stage and is likely to figure in Joachim Low’s Euro 2012 squad.
Chelsea may well be looking to do some serious chopping and changing in the forward area of their squad. Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou are out of contract this summer and Florent Malouda may also be on his way out with loaned out Israeli Yossi Benayoun probably also looking for a new club.
