Former Chelsea player Andre Schurrle is closing in on a loan move to Premier League side Fulham, according to the Evening Standard.

The Borussia Dortmund forward was reportedly in London on Tuesday to complete a medical with the new boys in the Premier League.

The former Chelsea player is expected to complete the transfer this week after being released from the club's tour in the United States of America.

The 2014 World Cup winner played for Wolfsburg after leaving Chelsea in 2015. He made 18 Bundesliga appearances last season, scoring once and assisting four goals.

The former Bayer Leverkusen player will be the club's fourth summer signing after completing the signing of Fabricio Ramírez, Jean Michael Seri and Maxime Le Marchand.

Schurrle's experience will be priceless for the London club as they bid to remain in the Premier League after spending many seasons out of it.

Fulham face Crystal Palace in their first game of the new Premier League season on August 11.
