Wolfsburg Readying Audacious £23m Bid For Chelsea Star

The Wolves keen on bringing out-of-favour Andre Schurrle back to the Bundesliga.

Bundesliga high flyers Wolfsburg are looking to capitalise on their fine start to the season in Germany’s top flight by making an audacious £23 million offer for Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle, report the Mail, with the German international reportedly having fallen out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho.

Schurrle has made just five Premier League starts for Chelsea this season and the report suggests that Mourinho is unhappy with the former Bayer Leverkusen man’s physical shape and has put him on a bespoke fitness regime in an attempt to improve matters.

Wolfsburg believe that they can capitalise on the friction between the player and his manager by launching an offer for Schurrle, however, with the £23m representing a £5m profit for Chelsea on the fee that they paid to the BayArena side to secure the German World Cup winner’s services.

The Wolves have had a fine Bundesliga campaign so far and are the closest challenges to Bayern Munich in the German top flight, filling the power vacuum created by the collapse of Borussia Dortmund, although they remain a distant second behind the country’s biggest club – a gap that could be closed by signing of the calibre of Schurrle.
