Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Andre Schurrle rumours

Chelsea player Andre Schurrle has been linked with a surprise move to Liverpool so what do Reds fans make of the rumours.

Reports last week claimed Chelsea were prepared to sell Andre Schurrle and now alleged suitors have found their way into the headlines, too.

Liverpool are now reportedly tipped to make a big-money bid for the German international in January, which has led to plenty of comment on social media platform Twitter.

Schurrle has made 12 appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring two goals in that time.  But recently he has been used predominantly from the bench and has seen his chances diminish as Jose Mourinho's side have gone on a great run with a regular, and highly effective, starting XI.

Two 90-minute outings in the League Cup aside, the German has not played an entire match for Chelsea this season and given his talent that is quite a waste.

So could Liverpool really make a move for the star?  Surely Mourinho will want to keep the player knowing full well the demands will only get tougher as he looks to oversee what could be the most successful campaign in Chelsea's history.

But Liverpool fans were mixed when we took to Twitter to assess the feeling among the Anfield faithful.
