Chelsea are ready to push ahead with a £25m swoop for Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle, according to the Mirror.

Boss Roberto Di Matteo is on the look-out for a replacement for the departed Didier Drogba and has given the green-light for the club to launch a move for the German forward.

The Italian identified Schurrle as a possible addition after being left impressed by the 21-year-old’s performances for Leverkusen last season, but he saw his opening bids rejected by the Germans – who were adamant they would hang on to the talented youngster.

However, the Mirror claim that Chelsea are now ready to return with an improved £25m bid, which is an offer that should prove to good to refuse for Bayer, with personal terms thought to be nothing more than a formality.

The European champions have signing young skillful attackers this summer with Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Oscar all making the move to Stamford Bridge, but Di Matteo wants to add a physical presence up front following the departure of Drogba, and Schurrle fits the bill perfectly.

    I have seen him playing more than few times for Byren leverkusen as well as for German National team. He looks very good for National team than at club level may be because the presence of better players around him makes him more comfortable.
    I can see only one of Schurle or Victor Moses to join chelsea. Though i guess Victor moses will find it difficult to break in Chelsea team even on bench may be looking at our crowded midfield.
    While Andre Schurle is more than capable of breaking into our first team squad as he can play on one of the wings position when F. Torres will play upfront as our alone striker.
    I will suggest go for him….
    up blues…..

    I think Schurrie (21) is first choice and Lewandowski (23) is second. Moses is a bench substitute.

    The German striker can’t replace drogba, pls get v. Moses, Lewandowski and a right back.

    The German andre is young guy full of talent i will be happy to welcome him and Moses for right back i guess we should forget about it for now since we have Sam Hutchinson a young promising right back with a lot of experience lets give him some chance and see how it goes till January. because we still have Poulo Fererre. All we need now just 2 signing Victor and Andre. But if power is in my hand i tempt Atlantico Madrid on name your price for Radamel Falcao he is perfect replacement of our Legend D.Drogba

    I think we victor moses,he is beta dan malouda,marin is injury prone and he can play anywhere in de attack so is sayin he is a bench warmer,shurrie is good backup striker for torres n also a right winger den for right back we have a young brazilian on de way name wallace dos santos n hutchison also todd kane no need throwing away cash den we wait till january..

    No doubt about it that moses will not see first team actions wit us compared to Schurle(even if we only signed him@Moses). Let’s get Falcao or dis Schurle den Azpi in right. We’ll rule Europe @ least once in the next 3years.

    August 7, 2012 at 6:55 am

    we should get moses as an option for premier league experience he has, then buy cavani to replace drogba and a right back for bosingwa’s replacement and we are ready for the season.

    Chelsea need a great centre forward like former Dider drogba 2 replace d gap on d top 9. Cavani wud hv been better but his amount is too expensive.. Lets go 4 a brazilian striker b4 season begins.. That wil be hard 4 us 2 rely on torres.. Pls lets make a gud signing by a move 4 a strong centre fowarder b4 new season begins.!

    what is d essence of buy ppl dat will rot in d bench! Let the likes of maluda,ferera,go on loan or sale, and if u want to spend heavyly on striker go for ramadel facao or better still get neyman and maura. Just like iniester ”oscar”,xavi ”maura” and messi ”neyman” now no one i mean no one can stand the tree and we rule for decade to come
