Schurrle will be allowed to depart the club in the upcoming transfer window
Schurrle linked up with the Blues in 2013 from Bayer Leverkusen for £18m. The 24-year-old has endured a dismal start and has found the back of the net only 11 times in 54 appearances. The German international become a peripheral figure in Chelsea despite shining for his country during their victorious World Cup campaign in Brazil.
Mourinho who has been keeping tabs on a number of attackers, most recently Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus, has claimed that Schurrle will be allowed to depart the club in the upcoming transfer window.
A Chelsea source revealed to The Sun, “José’s got to generate his own spending money in January but doesn’t want to sell any of his top stars,”
“So he’s looking at his fringe players and, on current form, Schurrle is the obvious choice.
“He’s not a regular and his form has been woeful this season — a real drop despite having returned from Brazil on a high after winning the World Cup.
“He’d also bring in a good fee, giving Jose the funds to move into the market himself.”
The German International Schurrle is stalling on a new deal at Dortmund and is attracting interest from premier league giants including Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.
In news posted by Dailystar it was also found that Premier League duo Liverpool and Tottenham have joined the hunt for Schurrle’s signature.
