Bayer Leverkusen general manager Wolfgang Holzhauser suggests that Andre Schurrle has more than likely penned a pre-contract agreement with Chelsea.

The 22-year old German striker has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer and Holzhauser has indicated that his shift at the end of the season is on the cards.

"Andre Schurrle has probably signed a pre-contract deal with Chelsea," Holzhauser told Kicker magazine.

"It all depends on whether we let him go. We have received a concrete offer for a fee which we are considering.

"But the price alone is not decisive. We must also have alternatives, which we don't have yet."
