Bayer chief Voller reveals Chelsea meeting as Schurrle deal close

Bayer Leverkusen chief Rudi Voller has confirmed talks with Chelsea in London as Andre Schurrle moves closer to a Blues switch. The Daily Mail says Schurrle's £20million transfer to Chelsea moved a step closer after Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Voller flew to London for talks with Stamford Bridge bosses.

"It was good to meet Chelsea officials, and the discussions went well, but no decision has been made yet," said Voller, who was accompanied by his Leverkusen assistant Michel Reschke on Thursday.

Schurrle's representatives, Ingo Haspel and Dr. Michael Becker, are expected in London on Friday for negotiations with Chelsea about a proposed five-year contract for the Germany forward.

Becker negotiated former Germany skipper Michael Ballack's free transfer from Bayern Munich in 2006 and has emerged as a key figure in Schurrle's proposed £20million move from Bayer Leverkusen.
