Chelsea transfers: Schalke respond to Andre Schurrle speculation
Horst Heldt insists that Schalke are not interested in signing Andre Schurrle from Chelsea
Schalke’s director of sport Horst Heldt insists that the German club are not interested in signing Andre Schurrle or Lukas Podolski in the January transfer window.
Schurrle’s Chelsea future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with the Bundesliga club, as well as Liverpool, touted as possible destinations for the World Cup winner.
Podolski, meanwhile, has also been linked with a winter move away from the Premier League due to his lack of playing time at Arsenal this season.
However, Heldt has denied suggestions that Schalke could be set to make a January move for either of the two players.
“We’re not considering Andre Schurrle at all,” Heldt told Sport-Bild.
“And the same goes for Xherdan Shaqiri and Lukas Podolski.”
