Yesterday, Chelsea agreed a deal with Bayer Leverkusen for Andre Schurrle. The Blues will pay the German outfit £18m for the forward.
The two clubs came to the agreement after months of speculation, in which it was thought that Chelsea would offer Kevin De Bruyne as part of the deal. For the moment, De Bruyne remains a Chelsea player.
Once personal terms are finalised, Schurrle will become Jose Mourinho's first signing since his return as Chelsea manager.
At the tender age of 22, Schurrle already has an impressive CV. He is a regular for the German international team and has netted 7 goals for his country.
Chelsea saw a bid for the player- who can also play as winger- rejected last summer. But the former Mainz footballer had since expressed his regret that the move did not happen.
Schurrle joins a Chelsea squad already full of exciting, young attacking talent, including the likes of Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar.
