BORUSSIA DORTMUND have slashed their asking price for Andre Schurrle by nearly 93 PER CENT.
The ex-Chelsea winger has failed to live up to expectations at the Bundesliga side and they now reportedly want just £2million for him – £25m less than the £27m they paid Wolfsburg for his services.
The German international , 29, helped the Blues win the 2014-15 title but left for Wolfsburg in the middle of that season.
After 13 goals and ten assists in 63 appearances for Wolfsburg, Dortmund broke the bank to sign Schurrle in 2016, but he failed to live up to expectations.
He spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Fulham and has just rejoined Dortmund after another campaign on loan – this time at Spartak Moscow.
However Schurrle is not part of Dortmund coach Lucien Favre’s plans for next season.
And the German league runners-up are eager to get him off their payroll, with the winger on an eye-watering £6m-a-year.
German outlet Bild now claim they are willing to take a £25m hit on Schurrle by accepting just £2m.
Italian minnows Benevento have just been promoted to Serie A and have already been linked with the 57 cap German international.
But they would struggle to afford his salary – whereas a smaller Premier League club may be tempted to take a chance on him.
Schurrle could yet make a second return to West London, with both Fulham and Brentford vying for a place in next season’s top flight.
