In the 2016 summer Andre Schurrle joined the ranks of Borussia Dortmund. He bagged 14 goals for the west Londoners in 64 outings and enjoyed league success in 2014-15 campaign.

“Chelsea was a dream for me. But after I was out for a few weeks through an infection, the coach unfortunately did not count on me much more often.”
