Andre Schurrle has posted a 'get well soon' message to reported Chelsea target Marco Reus, after the German attacker was ruled out until the start of 2015 with injury.
Schurrle and Reus know each other from their time together in the German national team set-up, and the Chelsea winger was quick to give his friend his best wishes.
Reus picked up ankle ligament damage while playing for Borussia Dortmund in their 2-2 draw with Paderborn on Saturday.
It is the latest in a succession of serve injuries the 25-year-old has suffered in recent times, and his manager Jurgen Klopp was left fuming with the rough-hand tactics which caused it.
"It was a horrific moment," Klopp is quoted as saying on Sky Sports. "It's a red card. A draw in Paderborn isn't that dramatic, but the loss of Reus is harder to accept."
Reus is one of Dortmund's most important players so to be without him for such a lengthy period of time will be a major blow for the side.
The German giants have been in terrible form over the opening of this campaign, and they would have been desperately hoping to keep all their key players fit.
If rumours are to be believed, then this could be Reus's last game for the club, with a queue of clubs ready to sign him.
Chelsea are among the interested parties as they feel he could offer a new dimension to their attacking line-up.
Rapid, skillful and direct, Reus is one of the most threatening attacking players in world football, and it seems that Schurrle would welcome the arrival of one of his friends to Stamford Bridge if Jose Mourinho's side do decide to make an offer.
