Chelsea finalize Baba Rahman deal

Chelsea close to Rahman capture

Chelsea have reached an agreement with Augsburg over the signing of defender Abdul Baba Rahman, according to reports.

The Ghanaian international has been associated with a move to the Premier League champions in recent weeks, as a replacement for recently-departed Filipe Luis.

It was earlier claimed that the German side had rebuffed a £17m bid for the talented full-back.

However, The Guardian now cites that the Blues have increased their initial offer, and successfully sealed a deal for the highly-rated defender.

Furthermore, Rahman is thought to have agreed terms over a contract, and is expected to undergo a medical test with the West London giants later this week.
