Andre Schurrle: Linked with a big-money move to Chelsea

Andre Schurrle: Linked with a big-money move to Chelsea

Bayer Leverkusen have confirmed they will consider approaches for reported Chelsea target Andre Schurrle but the Bundesliga club do not want to comment on speculation.

Premier League giants Chelsea have been linked with Schurrle for several years and they are now said to be ready to activate a €35million (£28.5m) contract release clause.

The Stamford Bridge club are reported to have tried to sign the player last summer and are now being linked with a £12million offer plus Kevin de Bruyne.

Leverkusen executives will look at any interest they receive in Schurrle, who has scored nine league goals this season, or any of their squad.

General manager Rudi Voller told Deutsche Presseagentur: "We are receiving transfer enquiries every now and then.

"Andre Schurrle is not the only player of interest. It is obvious to have a look at those proposals. We also did that last summer."

But Leverkusen are also keen to avoid being drawn in to responding to all conjecture ahead of the summer transfer window.

Club executive Wolfgang Holzhauser told Reviersport newspaper: "At this point in time, there is so much said.

"There are many rumours. I would prefer not to be part of all this."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
