At the time of writing, our resident Chelsea supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern were eagerly waiting for their club to make their third major signing of the summer with the news that Baba Rahman is closing on on his switch to Stamford Bridge.
A name few of our Blues contingent are familiar with, we have grown more and more accustomed to hearing his name of late in recent weeks and now everything points towards the Ghanaian international becoming Filipe Luis’ successor.
Highly rated in the Bundesliga given the time he has enjoyed with FC Augsburg, Rahman will face a tough task to break into Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven on a consistent basis with Cesar Azpilicueta having made the left back spot his own in recent seasons.
That said, Rahman has already won 11 senior international caps for the Black Stars while forging part of the Ghana squad that finished as runners-up in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
Elsewhere, Chelsea supporters would’ve liked some more signings, perhaps another midfielder and another striker and although Mourinho may claim his squad is pretty much complete this summer, you can never second guess the Portuguese tactician.
That’s why we’ve devised of five Blues targets who we believe could end up following Rahman into Stamford Bridge over the next few weeks.
