Andre Schurrle: Liverpool linked with former Chelsea star

Tottenham are reportedly interested in bringing Andre Schurrle back to the Premier League, just 18 months after he left Chelsea for Wolfsburg.

Schurrle moved to the Bundesliga in last season’s winter transfer window, saying he “only wanted to play football again”, but the Daily Mirror claims the 25-year-old is already unsettled and wants a summer move, with Wolfsburg unlikely to secure European football.

Schurrle is said to be unhappy working under Dieter Hecking at the Volkswagen Arena, while his Canadian fiancee is also believed to be keen to leave the city, possibly paving the way for a return to England.

Intermediaries have begun work on a deal between Spurs and Wolfsburg, according to the newspaper, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to add more attacking support for Harry Kane ahead of their return to the Champions League.

Schurrle predominantly plays out wide but boasts an impressive scoring record, with six goals in 25 league appearances this season. He managed 11 in 44 Premier League games for Chelsea and has scored 20 goals in 50 appearances for Germany.
