Chelsea closing in on Baba Rahman

The reigning English champions have been keeping tabs on the Ghana left-back for a long time and could be set to conclude a transfer in the coming days

The young full back had a great first season in the German Bundesliga with Augsburg last time out and it appears that his stay there was a very short one with rumours circulating that after stating that they are not in any duress to sell their best players, the club’s authorities are willing to let go of their prized asset for a fee of 14 million pounds.The 21 year old is also believed to be eager to link up with the Portuguese tactician.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be a huge admirer of the young Ghanaian and sees him as the long term heir to Ashley Cole whose replacement Felipe Luis is set to leave Stamford Bridge for Atletico Madrid after just one season at the Stamford Bridge.
