Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller believes that Chelsea striker Andre Schurrle can become a "world-class" player.

Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller has claimed that Chelsea striker Andre Schurrle can be "world-class".

The German international sealed a move to Stamford Bridge last month, and despite speculation linking the club with Wayne Rooney, Voller believes that the 22-year-old can become one of the world's best under Jose Mourinho.

"Andre can become an absolute world-class player," Voller told German tabloid Express.

"He needs to gain more ruggedness and has to become more forceful. That is important - most of all in England. If he gains on those areas he will become a big player."

Voller also spoke of Germany's hopes at the World Cup next summer, and believes that Schurrle will have a major role to play in the national team's future success.
