Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle after holding talks with representatives from the Bundesliga outfit.

Schurrle was believed to be Chelsea's top target last summer, and reports in recent days suggested the Blues were looking to open talks with Bayer this week about a deal for the striker.

And according to talkSPORT, officials from Leverkusen have arrived in London to hold negotiations with Chelsea.

It is believed midfielder Kevin De Bruyne could be offered to Leverkusen on loan in a bid to help the deal go through.

Chelsea failed with a £14m bid for Schurrle last summer, but the German club are ready to sell this summer for a fee in the region of £20m.

On Wednesday, German daily Welt reported that a five-year contract is already in place but that Bayer were wanting De Bruyne to be included as part of the deal.

Leverkusen general manager Rudi Voller earlier this week had told Deutsche Presseagentur: "We are receiving transfer enquiries every now and then.

"Andre Schurrle is not the only player of interest. It is obvious to have a look at those proposals. We also did that last summer."

Leverkusen executive Wolfgang Holzhauser also told Reviersport: "At this point in time, there is so much said. There are many rumours. I would prefer not to be part of all this."
