Bayer Leverkusen winger Andre Schurrle is pushing to join Chelsea in the coming fortnight. German sources say Schurrle plans to fly to London after his commitments with Germany in the USA are concluded to finalise his move to Stamford Bridge.

The winger is becoming fed-up with the delays on Bayer's side, declaring: "The last two months have been a brutal time. Always this back and forth but Leverkusen gets everything they want. It is now time, something has to give."

Bayer need to sell now, as his current contract has a clause which will see his buyout option fall to €14 million next year.
