Chelsea are on the verge of signing yet another player very soon with Augsburg full-back Abdul Baba Rahman, who agreed a five-year deal with the Blues, according to the Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed his time in the Bundesliga, his performances have attracted interest from the Premier League champions, with German magazine Kicker claimed £17.7m deal has been agreed and a move to Stamford Bridge could happen at some point this week.
Here are some of the best reactions from Chelsea fans after the Ghanaian defender Abdul Baba Rahman is close to completing a switch to the west London club.
Augsburg bought Baba Rahman for £1.8m last summer, selling him to Chelsea for £14.1m this summer (+ £3.5m in add-ons). Decent business.

Once again, I’m happy for Baba Rahman…..

Happy to get Baba Rahman of course, 21, lots of potential. But no point in signing a player that requires regular game time with Ivanović

Happy For Baba Rahman’s Move to Chelsea,will be a difficult task to displace Aspi esp when Mou loves Ivanovic for his Big Booty.

Mou made Ivanovic vice captain, and called Azpi the best LB in the league. Imagine thinking Baba Rahman will play more once every 7 games.

Baba Rahman is a good prospect and will fit nice into LB with Azpi moving over to his natural RB. We’ll have more options now

Any chance Rahman means more CB depth (Ivanovic) & Azpi on the right with Baba on the left? I know Hazard likes Azpi on the left but still.

Looks like we have got Baba Rahman. Should start in the lb position and Azpi should move to the rb position.

Just hope what happened to Filipe Luis won’t repeat itself with Baba Rahman. I expect Jose to use him at LB and Dave at RB. #CFC

Clear message from Mourinho to Ivanovic with the Baba Rahman interest ramping up. Would be nice to see Azpilicueta in his natural position.
