Andre Schurrle close to Wolfsburg switch - Chelsea star’s agent

Schurrle Chelsea

The Germany international is set to return to his homeland, with Juan Cuadrado’s imminent arrival at Stamford Bridge.

Andre Schurrle is on the verge of signing for Woflsburg, with the Chelsea star’s agent admitting that the clubs have agreed a transfer fee for the former Bayer Leverkusen man.

With Jose Mourinho’s side closing in on Juan Cuadrado, the German is set to return to his homeland as he has found first-team opportunities hard to come by of late in England.

Schurrle’s agent has stated that the finer details are only left to be stamped out before the deal is concluded.

"There are still a few things to discuss, but we're no longer talking about figures,” Ingo Haspel is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

Schurrle joined the west London club back in the summer of 2013 and has proved himself as a versatile member of the Blues squad, scoring some important goals along the way.

This term the 24-year-old has found first-team opportunities hard to come by however, starting only five Premier League games as Mourinho has favoured Willian on the right-hand side of his attack.

Schurrle’s new side Wolfsburg thumped defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich 4-1 on Friday night and are embroiled in the title battle in Germany.

He leaves London having featured in 44 Premier League games, scoring 11 goals.
