Andre Schurrle: Chelsea transfer target

Bayer Leverkusen have rejected speculation that Chelsea's interest in Andre Schurrle is on the wane.

Reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho is not keen on bringing in the Germany international to Stamford Bridge despite Chelsea's long pursuit of the 22-year-old.

Schurrle was close to joining Chelsea last season, but the move did not go through as the two clubs did not agree over the personal terms in the deal.

Leverkusen general manager Rudi Voller remains confident that the transfer, thought to be worth a fee of £20million, will be completed soon.

"We will not react to something like that [reports that the deal is off]," said the former German international. "We are still working on the transfer. The last signatures are missing."

Schurrle's agent, Ingo Haspel, echoed Voller's words over his client.

He said: "I'd like to think that the deal will come off over the next couple of days."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
