Baba Rahman set for Chelsea medical after agreed deal

Published 3 Comments

Baba Rahman is set to undergo a medical at Chelsea in the immediate future after the Blues agreed a deal with German outfit Augsburg for the player's services. 

This has been reported by the Telegraph, who claim that Jose Mourinho has grown frustrated by the club's failure to secure a new defender in the transfer window. 

Filipe Luis, of course, departed west London in favour of a return to Atletico Madrid, but it now appears that Rahman will join the Chelsea ranks after lengthy negotiations.

In fact, the same report claims that the deal will be worth as much as £14 million, that could rise depending on appearances over the coming years.

Mourinho, then, who watched his side drop points in the season opener against Swansea City, will no doubt be pleased to finally get his man, as he goes in search of retaining the title for the Blues.

Ideal replacement

And Rahman really is the ideal replacement for Luis. Ultimately, in the Bundesliga, the youngster has gone from strength-to-strength and will only continue to develop under the guidance of Mourinho. 

Learning from the duo of Branislav Ivanovic and Cesar Azpilicueta will no doubt help him succeed, too, so it certainly looks an exciting move for the full-back. 

It's an important addition for the Blues, who will also be hoping to make a major impact on the European scene this time round.
