Bayer Leverkusen winger Andre Schurrle could be a Chelsea player by the weekend.

Further talks have taken place between the Premier League club and Bayer Leverkusen over the versatile Germany forward, and a £20million player-exchange deal involving Kevin De Bruyne seems close to being rubber stamped.

"I am waiting for information from either Leverkusen or Chelsea, but there could be some positive news by the end of this weekend," said Schurrle's representative Ingo Haspel.

"It is an indication of how much Chelsea want the player that they are continuing to negotiate."
