Andre Schurrle will not be joining Wolfsburg despite multiple reports linking him with a move. The club were believed to be lining up a £23m bid for the Chelsea man.
But the Bundesliga side’s sporting director, Klaus Allofs, has rubbished these claims. He said: “There is no truth. I can categorically say that.”
It was thought that the German would be on his way out of Stamford Bridge, with the Blues only being able to buy players if they sell first, due to Financial Fair Play. However, it appears that Schurrle won’t be one of the players heading out of the club.
The player himself admitted he didn’t want to leave Chelsea in a blog post just before Christmas. He said: “In a phase with less playing time, transfer rumours are always coming up.
“Of course I want to be on the pitch as much as possible and score goals for my club. I feel comfortable here and would not think of such a thing!”
So it looks as if Schurrle is staying in London for the forseeable future.
