Andre Schurrle: A long-term transfer target for Chelsea

The Blues have held a long-term interest in Schurrle and they were linked with a move for his services during last summer's transfer window.

Chelsea scouts are thought to have watched the Germany international in action against Schalke last Saturday and the 22-year-old impressed, scoring in the 2-0 win for Leverkusen.

Chelsea are thought to be keen on bolstering their attacking options in January as doubts continue to surround the long-term futures of Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge

Schurrle, who can play as a striker or winger, would fit the profile of the players Chelsea are trying to recruit and he could slot in with the style of the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar.

Bayer are keen to keep hold of Schurrle, but Chelsea could test their resolve with a big-money offer in January.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
