Wolfsburg’s sporting executive Klaus Allofs has claimed that the club has no interest in signing Chelsea’s Andre Schurrle.
Asked whether Wolfsburg were set to make an offer, Allofs was quick to deny the notion, before admitting they’d face stiff competition for his signature if they did.
“A very clear no,” he told Bild. “Even if we were interested, we’d certainly not be alone”.
But we understands that, despite Allofs denial, Wolfsburg have had a £23.5 million bid rejected for Schurrle, with Chelsea hoping to earn closer to £27m for the former Bayer Leverkusen man.
