Chelsea will up bid to £25M for Bayer Leverkusen striker Schurrle

Chelsea are slapping in a new bid for Bayer Leverkusen striker Andre Schurrle.

The People says Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is making a blockbusting £25million bid for German star Schurrle - to fill Didier Drogba's big boots.

Schurrle has been on the radar since a successful season in the Bundesliga followed by some cameos at Euro 2012, and opening offers have been rebuffed.

But owner Roman Abramovich has backed Di Matteo to blow away Leverkusen - and rivals Bayern Munich, who made a major move for Schurrle last week.
