Chelsea are pushing Kevin de Bruyne to accept a move to Bayer Leverkusen in the coming days.

The Mirror says Stamford Bridge chiefs also want Belgian winger De Bruyne, 21, to move to Bayer Leverkusen this week - without kicking a ball for them.

De Bruyne, currently on loan at Werder Bremen, is key to the Blues' capture of Leverkusen hitman Andre Schurrle and is valued at £12m in a potential part-ex deal with the Bundesliga outfit.
