Tottenham are said to be monitoring former Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle

By Tottenham correspondent 

Tottenham are eyeing a shock move for former Chelsea attacking midfielder Andre Schurrle, according to a report.

Schurrle only joined Wolfsburg from Chelsea in January 2015 following an 18-month spell in west London.

The Mirror report that the 25-year-old is already unsettled at the Bundesliga club and could be interested in a return to the Premier League.

It is said that Tottenham have emerged a potential next destination for the Germany World Cup winner and intermediaries have begun to work on a deal between Spurs and Wolfsburg.

A move to White Hart Lane for Schurrle this summer would be regarded as a shock so soon after he left Chelsea in a £24million move.

The versatile forward was a bit-part player under Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge and left midway through their title-winning season after failing to dislodge regular starters Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian.

Nevertheless, Schurrle has a fine pedigree at club and international level, where he has scored 20 times in 50 matches for Germany.

For Wolfsburg this season, he has made 38 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals and supplying seven assists.

Title chasers Spurs are planning to beef up their squad ahead of their return to the Champions League next season.

A priority is to bring in more attacking support for the Premier League’s top scorer Harry Kane.

The latest Tottenham news is that there has been a twist in the club’s pursuit of new striker.
