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.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
