Chelsea transfer rumours
Chelsea and Arsenal look to be the two main competitors in the race to sign highly-rated young Augsburg left-back Baba Rahman in this summer’s transfer window.
Manchester City are also mentioned as interested in the 20-year-old, who is one of the most promising young full-backs in Europe at the moment after an outstanding campaign in the Bundesliga.
According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea are eyeing the Ghanian as an ideal replacement for the unsettled Filipe Luis, who could return to Atletico Madrid.
Arsenal, meanwhile, could also need reinforcements at left-back this summer if Nacho Monreal returns to La Liga as well, with some doubt over the Spaniard’s future.
