Andre Schurrle: No deal has been done with Chelsea as yet

Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle remains hopeful of leaving the Bundesliga club in the summer, with Chelsea firm favourites to land him.

The 22-year-old, who has scored 14 times for the club this season, is expected to complete the formalities of a big-money switch to Stamford Bridge in the next few weeks.

However, the deal could be dependent on Kevin De Bruyne heading the other way, with the young Belgian now understood to prefer a move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

"We'll see. Certain things were promised to me," Schurrle told reporters following his side's 1-0 win at Hamburg on the final day of the Bundesliga season.

"I hope they will keep these promises. It also depends on Leverkusen. I think, it was my last match."

Meanwhile, Leverkusen's sporting director Rudi Voller revealed no deal had been done yet with the Europa League winners for Schurrle.

"Let's all stay cool. We said it is only possible, if we find a proper alternative."

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.
