Chelsea Transfer News: Blues To Make Late Striker Bid

European champions Chelsea are set to table a late improved offer for Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Shurrle as Roberto Di Matteo looks to but a new striker

As we enter the final stages of the summer transfer window, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news. Today, Chelsea are linked with another move for Andre Schurrle.

Chelsea are set to table a late improved offer for Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Shurrle, according to the Guardian.

The Blues have been strongly linked with the German international this summer and have already seen a £16m rejected by the Bundesliga outfit.

However, Roberto Di Matteo is desperate to add another striker to his squad before Friday’s 11pm transfer deadline and has once again turned his attention to Shurrle after being frustrated in his attempts to sign the likes of Hulk, Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao this summer.

Leverkusen are insistent that the 21-year-old forward is not for sale, but may find it hard to keep hold of him if an offer to good to refuse comes in from the European champions – who are expected to table another bid in the next 48 hours.

Should they successfully land Shurrle, it could take Chelsea’s spending towards the £100m mark. Roman Abramovich has loosened the purse-strings this summer and splashed £75m on Eden Hazard (£32m), Oscar (£20m), Marko Marin (£7m), Victor Moses (£9m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£7m) and with a striker expected to come in this week, the spending is set to continue.

    Chelsea have moved on well with the summer transfer so far. I think adding André Schurrle will be a great option for the blues. Up Chelsea!

    Shrull would be perfect to sign, bc/s he is a good striker, young, no trait for Torres and especially cheap.

    great if only we can secure his signature bfore transfer window closed.shruffle is good player dat emerge from germany.we need him if only we want to compete for premiership.just one additional striker is enough.torress,sturridge and moses are okay but let us think about injury and and fatigue and moreover all the competition we are involves in……this guy is still vry young and is additional plus for chelsea.let us get him now so that we will be ever ready for challanges ahead.thanks

    Am ok with schurrle because of his ability to play both up front and the wings and he is no doubt a very good player but if hulk can come for around £25m, i’ll prefer him cos of his presence and shooting ability.

    ITS GOOD TO get additional striker and schurrle is definitely a good fit is going to add more depth to our squad,get him quick fast.

    Hence the signing of hulk/cavani is not working out.let RDM sign andry schorel

    Adding an additional striker is a good idea buh who to sign is d question? I dnt thnk schürrle is d answer anymore. Since we have sturridge and victor who cn play on d flank and also play up front [act as box to box striker], i dnt think schürrle is needed anymore. I thnk we need a pure striker who can be a constant threat to d opposition defence to act as cover 4 torres and will also keep torres on his toes. Take man city 4 example, they hv 3 pure striker [mario, dzeko and aguero] who can act as cover 4 d position. So i think falcao will be better and he’s d beta option among d three strikers [cavani, hulk, falcao] we hv being bidding 4 all summer as he’ll come cheap among d three.

    Since chelsea hv got moses,I don’t think hulk is needed again,RDM should sign another top striker as a back up for nando(9).schurrle isn’t bad.up blues.

  15. Amadi Daniel

    RDM should seal Malouda, farera & benayun. In oda to compelet the money & buy cavani. In the deadline day.

  16. temitope

    August 29, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    The best striker that can fit in to Chelsea front is either hulk or cavani

  17. Vincent Akinboboye

    August 29, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    We need an additional striker like Ramadel Falcao who’s stil young and full of aspiratiöns. The offensive side of chelsea RDM is building needs a paceful striker. Falcao or Cavani pls

  18. isaac dezko

    we still need striker……simply bcos of all competition we are in to…sso if we can sign we be a back up for El=nino and daniel…pls RDM do this to complete d transfer saga….on a triumphant way…up blues

    If schurrie deal is not materialised,let go for Taison,it my put a surprises performance in chelsea. Porto buy hulk from japan in 2008,see what he turn to,if will can take a risk to buy him,I have the believe that he will perform very well for chelsea and score many goals,even the price is very cheap. thanks up blues.

    August 29, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    RDM, pls try as much as posible,2 finish d cavani bid befor deadline or falcao & schurrel.lve hulk he is a selfish player

  22. A.B

    August 29, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Well for me I think we should forget about hulk and go for cavani,he is not worth what porto are asking for,if he is that good he won’t be sitting on the bench were kids are playing in the olympic,pls just get us cavani,and give lucas piazon a chance to prove himself cos that young lad ve a lot to prove. Pls sale sturrage and maluda befor they influence the new ones wit their greedy style of play. And if possible get theo walcot to replace both of them. God bless chelsea and all blue fan. The sky is blue.

    I honestly believed that chelsea are stil in need of striker like Schurrle; that will make a perfect chelsae squad.

  24. favourlas philips

    August 29, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    i go wit Amadi Daniel RDM should seal Malouda, Ferera and benayoun so dat chelsea can have enough money 2 re-enforce tough striker like CAVANI, FALCAO and HULK wit 1 or 2 of dis guy in chelsea squard i tink and i believe chelsea is unbeatable. pls RDM do sometin b4 it is 2 late and we only have 2 days 2 go and 4 schurrle OK 4 signing. cheers up BLUES………….

    Tottaly agree with all the readers, we do need another striker. If we cant sign Hulk or Cavani, than we should look at Diamou, Oscar’s team mate at Intercontial, or Tiason. We let Lakuku go on loan to WBA now we are talking about getting this kid Schurrle. Now i know from watching clips of him on youtube he does look the business as he can play wide as well. But surly this will be a waste of time as we could have kept Lakuku instead and saved money.
