Reports in Germany suggest that Chelsea will offer Bayer Leverkusen Kevin de Bruyne and £10.1m to land Andre Schurrle.

Chelsea will use Kevin de Bruyne as bait to land Bayer Leverkusen winger Andre Schurrle, according to reports in Germany.

The Blues have long been interested in the 22-year-old German international, who impressed during last year's Euro 2012.

The Bundesliga outfit reportedly turned down a €25m (£21.2m) offer last summer, but Bild believes that the West London club will renew their interest.

According to the German newspaper, a bid of €12m (£10.1m), as well as the Belgian attacker, may tempt Lowen into business.

De Bruyne is currently on loan at Werder Bremen, where he has been a bright light during a stuttering campaign.

His agent Patrick de Koster recently stated that the 21-year-old's future lies at Stamford Bridge.
