Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are ready to offer Wolfsburg winger André Schürrle a return to the Premier League, according to German reports.

Former Chelsea winger is currently under contract with the German side, but their poor Bundesliga season added fuel to the fire.

During his first Premier League’s experience the German International and World Cup winner struggled to play regularly at Chelsea, now Reds and Spurs are reportedly keen to give him a second chance.

Kicker reveals that Jurgen Klopp has targeted Schurrle, who has recently said: “Right now is not a topic for me to discuss as we have important games to go.”

“But after that we have to talk about the future and of course there might be changes”.

It is understood Schurrle is unhappy with Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking and his Canadian wife also loves England.

Juventus are desperately trying to keep Chelsea loanee Juan Cuadrado on a permanent deal but next Blues boss Antonio Conte is really keen to bring him back to London.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport the Italian club nearly resigned to the chance to sign him.

Cuadrado failed to make an impact in his first four months spell at Chelsea and was loaned to Juventus last summer: he came back to impress with the Bianconeri, finding again the confidence and the pace he needed.

For these reasons Conte, that always had a soft spot for the Colombian winger, wants Cuadrado in his next Chelsea squad and is not open to negotiate a permanent deal with his ex club, Juventus.

Atletico Madrid chairman Enrique Cerezo spoke to Spanish radio Onda Cero about Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

In fact, it’s no mystery the Spanish side would like to bring back the forward to the Vicente Calderón in next summer transfer window but Chelsea are really keen to keep him, as well as their new manager Antonio Conte:

He’s got a contract with Chelsea and we must respect this,” Cerezo said.

“To negotiate with Chelsea will be really hard, almost impossible.

“We don’t have to forget he is one of the Blues stars. 

“If Falcao was close to come back last January? He was injured and we didn’t know really well the injury’s extent.”

As we reported today from Bild Chelsea were keen to call back defender Andreas Christensen from his loan to Borussia Mönchendgladbach.

But the Blues might be disappointed by the young Danish talent: in fact, rumours from Germany says that he would like to finish his two years loan spell at the Bundesliga side, that means to stay there for another season.

Chelsea are ready to offer Dutch midfielder Nathan Ake – now on loan at Watford- to Gladbach but with no break clause at their disposal, it would need the agreement of Chelsea, Monchengladbach and Christensen to cut the loan deal short and the player is happy to spend another season in Germany.

After his high profile loan move from Corinthians, we have yet to hear a thing of Alexandre Pato. So when will he be introduced?

The Brazilian League finished on December 6th, meaning when Pato signed for the Blues he had 6 weeks with no football. It has been nearly three weeks since he moved to Chelsea but since his move he has been the forgotten man and is yet to be involved in a match day squad.

The Blues are unlikely to include him in such a big game against Manchester City this weekend. But he could be involved in next weeks Premier League clash against Southampton.
