Arsenal are interested in landing Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle, suggests an insider
While the Germany international is getting his fair share of opportunities, he is mainly unitlised as a rotation guy behind preferred attackers Eden Hazard, Oscar, and Willian.
He started only 9 of the 22 appearances he had in the Premier League, while getting more exposure in the Champions League because the Blues were in a relatively "easy" group.
The 23-year-old is rumoured to be considering a Bundesliga return, with Dortmund and Schalke as possible destinations, but the Gunners are suggested to consider him as a welcome addition to reinforce their attacking line.
"We're aware that Chelsea might be open to selling Schurrle," an Arsenal insider told Football Direct News.
"He's a player who interests us, though of course they wouldn't loan us Demba Ba last summer so it could be a difficult move."
While the west Londoners might show hesitation to sell to a fellow contender, the trend shows that such speculated would not be so impossible as exemplified by the Daniel Sturridge and Juan Mata deals.
