Leverkusen reject Chelsea bid for Schurrle

It was rumoured that Chelsea were interested in 21-year old German international Andre Schurrle last summer. Schurrle had just completed a great season for his first club Mainz 05. His 15 league goals for the season is a club record, and earned him a move to Bayer Leverkusen.

Chelsea have renewed their interest in the player this summer and have made an offer of £17 million, which has been rejected by the German club, Daily Mail reports. Leverkusen only paid around £6 million for him but are thought to now value him  at over £20 million.

Schurrle has not been as prolific for his new club, but he has been deployed as a winger rather than a central striker. His speed and dribbling have earned him the reputation of being a full back’s nightmare.

His international career with Germany is going well, with seven goals from his 16 games so far. Schurrle is a fantastic prospect for the future but we will have to wait and see if Roberto Di Matteo is willing to up the offer. He may be seen as an alternative to Hulk, as he plays in the same sort of positions.

Porto seem to be making it very difficult for Chelsea and Di Matteo may have deided to abandon his pursuit of the Brazilian

    Schurle is a great talent, seen him playing couple of times n he has everything to succeed @ Chelsea. I guess he is far better option than Hulk as we will be spending just half of the money required for hulk on him. He plays as striker as well as winger and has got very good pace n dribbling ability. Now what we need is Modric in midfield and a new right back for alternative to Ivanovic.
