With the blues looking to add to the reforming process, and bring in some more attacking flair, they are all set to do everything in their power to sign the young, powerful, and quick German international Andre Schurrle to the Bridge.

Having already failed with one bid of around £17 million pounds, Chelsea have been reported to be heading right back in with a bid of around £20 million, according to The Daily Mail.

The 21-year old German possesses immense strength and pace, and will operate from the wings, or in central role. He is a fast attacker who likes to move the ball around and get at defenders. Chelsea officials have been watching him for a while now, and have seemed to place the German man as one of their highest targets.

Chelsea are looking to test the resolve of Bayer Leverkusen, who are adamant they want to keep their prize asset, but with the money power of Roman Abramovich behind them, how much longer can they resist?

Andre Schurrle has been capped 16 times for his country, and is part of a fresh new crop of youngsters who are a product of the new and improved German grass roots coaching system.
