Marin, 23, joined Werder from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2009 and has since impressed at the Weserstadion with his creative play, managing 25 assists in 87 Bundesliga appearances

The winger, who has struggled for fitness this campaign, will join Chelsea in the summer, when he is also expected to be named in Germany's squad for Euro 2012.
