Schurrle had a goal disallowed and hit the outside of the post during Wolfsburg's 5-4 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Schurrle, making his second start since joining Wolfsburg from Chelsea, has now taken five shots in two matches, and he picked up an assist in his debut on Feb. 7 against Hoffenheim. He is a solid talent that should continue to be an attacking presence for a Wolfsburg side that continues to show they can put up big scores.

Wolfsburg announced Monday that they have agreed terms with Chelsea on a transfer of Schurrle to the Bundesliga side.

Schurrle has long been rumored to be heading to Germany in order for Chelsea to bring in Fiorentina midfielder Juan Cuadrado. Schurrle really struggled to find consistent playing time for the Blues, but he'll have a shot to make an impact with fellow former-Chelsea player Kevin de Bruyne, who has thrived with Wolfsburg this season.

Chelsea is moving close to an agreement to sell Schurrle with both Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund interested in the midfielder, according to the Daily Mail.

Schurrle has been out with a back issue, but a deal could be completed in time for him to move to Germany. Wolfsburg remains his likely destination, and Chelsea has asked for more than 30 million for the transfer, which would help them fund a move for Juan Cuadrado.

Schurrle came on in the 75th minute and scored four minutes later during Chelsea's 5-0 rout of Swansea City on Saturday.

Schurrle's goal was his first in Premier League play since Sept. 21 against Manchester City. With Willian and Eden Hazard locked into the midfield wing spots, Schurrle has been a popular name in transfer rumors this month.

Schurrle, who has been a doubt due to an illness, was an unused substitute Saturday against West Brom.

Manager Jose Mourinho used his subs on Ramires, Didier Drogba and Loic Remy on Saturday, which left Schurrle to stay warm on the bench. He's a decent contributor when he's on the pitch, but his playing is very inconsistent, which makes him a tough fantasy player to rely upon.
