Chelsea Agree Deal For Schurrle

Chelsea have agreed a fee with Bayer Leverkusen and will soon complete the transfer of German international, Andre Schurrle.

The Blues have been chasing 22-year-old attacking midfielder Schurrle, and will pay a reported £20 million to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

They will also send their highly-rated Belgian midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne, to Leverkusen on loan for the 2013-14 season.

"We have reached an agreement with Chelsea," Leverkusen’s general manager, Wolfgang Holzhuuser, told the Rheinische Post newspaper.

"They are going to buy Andre Schurrle for a specific fee and, in return, they will loan De Bruyne to us for a year for free.

"I expect Chelsea to stand by what has been agreed."

Schurrle will undergo a medical and sign for Chelsea when he returns from Germany’s end of season tour to America.

Leverkusen’s Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund will be unimpressed. They had also hoped to sign De Bruyne, and will now continue their search for the player(s) to replace departed Mario Gotze.
