Abdul Baba Rahman wants to complete Chelsea transfer

Published Add your comment

Augsburg full-back Abdul Baba Rahman wants to complete a move to Chelsea this summer despite interest from the Premier League duo of Arsenal and Manchester City. 

This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that the Ghana international could complete a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer transfer window. 

Rahman, who has been rated at £15 million by his club, is recognised as one of the leading young left-backs in Europe, with the player having proved his credentials in the Bundesliga of late.

Chelsea, of course, are seemingly on the lookout for a new addition in the left-back role, with Filipe Luis linked with a return to Atletico Madrid. 

And, despite recent reports from the Mirror claiming that the player was having doubts over a move to Stamford Bridge, the Mail have now suggested that the youngster is keen on a move to west London.

The right replacement 

Ultimately, Rahman doesn't have the same experience as Luis, but he'd no doubt prove a fine long-term coup for Jose Mourinho and Co.

At the end of the day, Luis will be right to leave Stamford Bridge as it's seemingly unlikely that he will break into the club's starting XI anytime soon and he's not getting any younger.

Rahman, on the other hand, will only continue his development in the game by learning from two of the most established defenders in the Premier League in Branislav Ivanovic and Cesar Azpilicueta. 

£15m isn't exactly cheap for a young full-back, but if Chelsea don't complete the deal, then another side surely will.
