Chelsea leading race for Rahman Baba

Chelsea leading race for Rahman Baba

by -

Chelsea will make a bid of £14 million for Ghana international Baba Rahman after selling Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid.

The Premiership champions are seeking to bolster their defence and have been linked with a number of defenders in recent days and it appears that they are homing in on the Augsberg full-back despite competition from Juventus and Roma.

Rahman, 21, is supposedly in favour of a move to England, meaning that the Blues will most likely have to beat competition from Arsenal and Manchester City, both of whom have expressed interest.

Augsberg are, according to reports in Germany, resigned to losing Rahman but will hold out for a fee of £25 million.
