Bundesliga side Wolfsburg have stepped up their interest in Andre Schurrle by reportedly making a £23 million bid for the Chelsea forward.

The 24-year-old German hasn't exactly had the best time at Stamford Bridge this season, making limited starts for the Blues due to him being down the pecking order behind the likes of Oscar, Eden Hazard and Willian.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has also criticised the German forward's performances on a couple of occasions this season, with him recently stating that Schurrle needs to toughen up in order to get a regular starting spot in the Blues star studded squad.

Due to these reasons, there have been speculations that Schurrle is keen to make a move out of Chelsea and go back to Germany.

And Wolfsburg are reportedly looking to take advantage of this situation by making a £23 million bid for the Germany International, according to the Daily Mail.

The German side have reportedly made Schurrle their priority signing this season as they believe that the forward can help them push for a place in the Champions League next season.

Although Borussia Dortmund is also believed to be interested in securing the 24-year-old signature, Wolfsburg are reportedly confident that Schurrle will chose them over the Die Borussen due to their superior position in the Bundesliga.

While Wolfsburg's are currently in second position, nine points behind leaders Bayern Munich, in the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund are currently fighting relegation in 17th place.

However, Wolfsburg's bid of £23 million may not be enough to sign Schurrle, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen for £18million in the summer of 2013, as Chelsea reportedly value him at £30 million.

Meanwhile, Chelsea captain John Terry says that the Blues are motivated to win four trophies ahead of their Capital One Cup first leg semi-final clash against Liverpool.

The Blues, who are right on course to win their first Premier League title since the 2009/10 season, are also still competing in the Capital One Cup, FA Cup and the Champions League.

And Terry, who claims that Chelsea are where they want to be, says that the Blues are aiming to win all the four trophies this season.

"At this stage, to still be involved in all competitions is where you want to be, and it's down to big players to step up," Terry told the Chelsea website. "There's a motivation in the dressing room to win the league and push on in the Capital One Cup, Champions League and FA Cup."

"We've got top, top players but, as I've said before, until we go and win things, it's not there yet, and that will be the test. We've shown during the first half of the season that we're capable of pushing the top sides and that's what we aim to do."
