Chelsea Transfer News: Blues Launch Late Move For £20m 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 to make a late move for Andre Shurrle.
Chelsea have made a late deadline day move to try and sign Bayern Leverkusen forward Andre Shurrle, according to the Guardian.
The Blues have been linked with the German attacker for months and have already had a £16m bid rejected by Leverkusen earlier in the summer, with the German side adamant they want to hang on to their star man.
However, the Guardian claim the European champions have not given up hope of landing the 21-year-old and feel their renewed offer of £20m will be enough to persuade the Bundesliga outfit to sell.
Chelsea are hopeful they can wrap the deal up before they play their Super Cup match against Atletico Madrid tonight.
Should Roberto Di Matteo manage to sign Shurrle, it would throw the future of Daniel Sturridge into doubt, as the Germans arrival would further dent the England strikers first team chances at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool and Tottenham are believed to be monitoring his situation.
