Chelsea are set to meet with representatives of Bayer Leverkusen attacker Andre Schurrle to discuss personal terms over a proposed £20m move Stamford Bridge this summer, according to the Mirror.

The report claims Schurrle’s agents were at Wembley on Sunday to watch Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Man City in the semi final’s of the FA Cup and the Blues are now expected to open talks this week ahead of a move to west London at the end of the season.

The newspaper suggests Roman Abramovich was keen to land the talented 22-year-old last summer but was priced out of a move, but it’s now believed Leverkusen are ready to cash-in at the end of the season and the Blues owner is keen to tie up a £20m deal swiftly.

Schurrle is a versatile forward who can play anywhere across the front-line so will provide Chelsea with plenty of options in attack should he complete a move this summer.

With Rafa Benitez due to leave his interim post next month, it seems Abramovich is calling the shots until a new full-time manager is in place and Schurrle could be a nice welcoming present for the new boss – whoever he may be.

    If Mouriho comes it will be a big surprise. You can’t just buy any player for Jose, and all this buying without manager’s wish list is an indication that Mourinho is not needed by Roman any longer. Though it appears as if Chelsea beard are planning to retain Rafa, but I fear the decision to retain Benitez because it will surely spell doom for Chelsea next season. Watchout!
