Chelsea Look to Complete Summer Spending Spree With £18m German International Bid

Stamford Bridge side make new offer for Bayer Leverkusen forward.

Chelsea will attempt to tie up an £18million deal for Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle.

Roberto Di Matteo has been hot on the heels of the Germany international all summer and have already had a £16million offer turned down by the Bundesliga club.

Having forked out over £80m thus far this summer Chelsea have been by far the biggest spenders of this transfer window but it seems that Roman Abramovich isn’t quite finished yet. The Blues owner is looking to bring in another attacking option and has made unsuccessful offers for Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle previously but now wants to up his bid to finally land the young German international.

The 21 year old German had a fairly average first season at the BayArena but is a player with a great deal of potential, a player who has caught the eye more with national team performances than his Bundesliga form and seemingly a player that the West London side would like to have in their attacking armoury.

Bayer Leverkusen failed to secure a Champions League berth for this term and could therefore be in need of balancing their books and an £18m offer may tempt the Bundesliga club into selling.

Chelsea have started the season well with three wins from three and Fernando Torres is starting to show what he is capable of but Di Matteo could still do with further attacking options before the transfer window slams shut.

The Stamford Bridge side have already brought in Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin, Thorgan Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta and Victor Moses as Abramovich looks to build for the future with youthful additions.
