Reports out of Germany are suggesting that Chelsea haveĀ  got their man, Baba Rahman for a fee of about $25 million. Bild reportsĀ  reporting (print version only) that Chelsea and FC Augsburg have agreed to a fee for fullback Baba Rahman, who would provide cover on both the left and right flanks for the Blues.

Chelsea have been in search of a fullback since finalizing a deal to send Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid.

Stephen Schimdt said in a report in SB NAtion of Saturday, “Rahman was easily on top of my wishlist as far as fullbacks went this summer, as his combination of age, current skill, and potential is unrivaled at the moment. I took a closer look at why Rahman is such a good fit earlier in the week, and I’m thrilled to see him coming to a Chelsea side in which he won’t have the pressure to start immediately.

I’d imagine there will be little issue with agreeing personal terms with the player, so if the Bild report is accurate, we will likely be seeing our new fullback available for the premier League opener.”

Chelsea have been relatively bearish in the market this summer, but another of surprise addition to the club before the close of transfer window cannot be ruled out.
