Schurrle not discussing Dortmund rumours

VfL Wolfsburg forward Andre Schurrle has refused to comment on speculation linking him with a move to Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.

The Germany international is a reported target for Dortmund head coach Thomas Tuchel, who was responsible for giving Schurrle his senior debut at 1. FSV Mainz 05 seven years ago.

Tuchel is expected to lose the services of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with Manchester United believed to be leading the chase for his signature, and Schurrle is seen as a potential replacement for the Armenia international.

But the 27-year-old is not interested in discussing the Dortmund rumours, insisting he is thinking only of helping his country go as far as possible at Euro 2016.

“I don’t want to say anything about it. Otherwise it’ll become a great issue again,” Schurrle told Bild.

“That Thomas Tuchel spoke with me on the phone is nothing I want to comment any further. We are at the Euro now, and that’s what I want to focus on.”
