Ghana defender Baba Rahman set to join Chelsea from Augsburg
Chelsea are reportedly lining up a bid for £15m-rated Augsburg left back Baba Rahman after agreeing a deal with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Felipe Luis back to the Claderon.
The 29-year old Brazilian left back have failed to impress at Stamford bridge in his first season in the English Premier League, reports suggest that the Premier league champions and former La Liga champions have agreed a deal, with sources at Atletico claiming it is for £11m.
This will allow Jose Mourinho to make his move for 21-year-old Rahman who he has been monitoring for some time now.
Chelsea have yet to agree a fee with Bundesliga club Augsburg but negotiations should now begin with the player expected to arrive before the Community Shield.
Atletico want Luis to travel to Madrid on Wednesday ahead for a proposed medical.
