Schurrle The Start Of Chelsea Signings?

So, Jose Mourinho’s first signing will arrive with Andre Schurrle set to join from Bayer Leverkusen for £18million.

We know Schurrle, 22, has been on the Chelsea radar for at least a year anyway but before everyone starts with the ‘Roman’s signing’ drivel, we’re told Mourinho had the final say so and sign-off on the transfer, so there’s no meat to pick out of them bones.

Schurrle plays on the left wing but he doesn’t mind a striker role when called upon. He’s a bit quick, has strength on the counter and should beef up a bit of a lightweight midfield on the attack.  Not necessarily clinical but apparently he’s not exactly short-sighted when it comes to taking a shot on from distance either, so maybe we’ll get a bit of the spectacular rather than solid scoring from him?

Either way, he should bring some of the depth we lacked last season, so he is more than welcome at Stamford Bridge.
