Chelsea are keeping tabs on Andre Schurrle's situation at Bayer Leverkusen.

The Germany striker is a top target for Chelsea chief Michael Emenalo, who failed with a €22 million offer for the youngster in August.

The Blues' interest hasn't waned and Emenalo is aware that Schurrle's deal carries a €25 million buyout clause.

The 22 year-old Schurrle is seen at Chelsea as the ideal replacement for new Liverpool signing Danny Sturridge.
