Chelsea are set to table an improved £20m offer for Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle as Roberto Di Matteo looks to add three more players to his squad this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The Italian boss has made youth a priority this summer with the purchases of Marko Marin, 23, Eden Hazard, 21, and Oscar, 20, all coming in as the Blues have rejuvenated their ageing squad.

This recruitment drive shows no signs of letting up with Abramovich set to sanction moves for Schurrle, 20, as well as Marseille right back Cesar Azpilicueta, 22, and Wigan winger Victor Moses, 21.

Di Matteo is desperate to replace striker Didier Drogba, who left the club at the end of last season, and has been tracking Leverkusen’s Schurrle all summer.

The European champions have already seen a £16m bid rejected by the Bundesliga outfit and it’s understood they will now return with an improved £20m offer.

The 21-year-old is said to be keen on a move to Stamford Bridge, despite only moving to Leverkusen 12 months ago from Mainz, but the Germans will do all they can to hang on to the talented attacker.

    We don’t need players like schurrie his too small 2 lead the striking roles in english premier league, you can compare german bundesliga with epl, look @ the euro 2012 over 65 % players participated are from epl, very energetic league i ever seen 90 minute for active running without slow pace from any angle, look @ the number of players who fail 2 perform in epl, andry shev, hernna crespo, aquillani, robinho, taye taiwo,trezeguet, mourane chamark, arshavin, claudo pizzaro who failed 2 demonstrate his skills in epl but it leading the highest goals scorer in germany, we need physical players who can the stop and trouble epl defenders. Like. Vidic, kompany, evra, gael clichy, koshieny, skertel, richard, etc.

      Hi Henry Smith,it seems that you do not know the young guy (schurrle) very well,besides we are talking about strikers now not defenders as you listing,so i think we need a replacement of drogba,any one who can fit in his position and change games at any time.chelsea’s defence is okay for now. up chelsea! up players! up Di matteo! up Big Boss!

    We need them 3 players and we should offload players like malouda, benayoun and merieles and if we can’t get Schurrle then we should do a swap deal with Cavani and merieles and pay money on top.
