Chelsea winger Andre Shurrle is set to have a medical at Wolfsburg later on today, and this could open the door for Juan Cuadrado to complete his move from Fiorentina.
Schurrle seems to have found himself the unfortunate player to be sold in order to keep Chelsea's financial fair play restrictions intact.
It’s being reported that Jose Mourinho needs to sell someone before he can buy, and the Germany winger's sale is thought to bring in the necessary funds to tie up a deal for Colombia winger Cuadrado.
A final fee for Schurrle is yet to be finalised but it’s being reported that Chelsea have negotiated a £21m deal with Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg. The fee has the potential to rise to about £27m with all the added bonuses and clauses set in place.
Chelsea, on the other hand, have reportedly negotiated a £23m deal with Fiorentina and that fee may also rise depending on bonuses. The Blues will also be sending Mohamed Salah on loan to the Italian outfit for the rest of the season, as part of the deal.
The situation around Cuadrado is all dependent on Chelsea securing moves for Salah and Schurrle, but it seems to be all on track for now.
