Chelsea Transfer News: Di Matteo Targets Trio
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.
With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Chelsea make another move for Andre Schurrle.
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.
