Wolfsburg not selling Schurrle

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs insists they will not entertain any offers for Andre Schurrle amid reported interest from BVB Dortmund.

Die Wolfe are in the process of overhauling their squad for the new campaign following a disappointing eighth-placed finish in the Bundesliga this past season.

Daniel Didavi has already been recruited from relegated Stuttgart, while fellow midfielder Yannick Gerhardt is expected to complete his move from FC Koln later this week.

However, Allofs is adamant that Schurrle remains an integral part of their plans for the future and will not be sold, despite making a slow start to his career at the Volkswagen Arena.

Reports in the German media claim that the 25-year-old has attracted interest from Dortmund, which would see him reunited with Thomas Tuchel, who gave Schurrle his first-team debut at Mainz.

But Allofs told Kicker: "I don't even want to open the door even a bit. We have clearly said that we will not sell Andre."

Schurrle initially struggled for form following his arrival from Chelsea in January 2015, although he finally seems to have settled down after scoring nine goals for Dieter Hecking's during the second half of the season.
