Despite claiming it’s only the FA Community Shield, our resident Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern still can’t stand losing to London rivals Arsenal and have been ordering their fair share of stiff drinks since yesterday afternoon.
It was Arsene Wenger’s first win against a Chelsea side led by Jose Mourinho in 14 attempts and following the Premier League curtain raiser, some Blues fans think there is still a few questions to be answered by their club this summer.
One of these questions surrounds who will be brought in at left back to cover for the now departed Filipe Luis and at present, everything points towards FC Augbsurg’s Baba Rahman becoming a Blue in a matter of hours.
The Ghanaian international is reportedly closing in on a Stamford Bridge switch at the moment with Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl having even claimed he’d rather a deal was concluded sooner rather than later so they can source their own replacement.
While he’s not an instantly recognisable name for most Chelsea fans, Rahman was part of an Augsburg team that impressively finished in fifth place in the Bundesliga last term.
But the question on the lips of our Blues fans this evening is whether Rahman will turn out to be their last arrival of the summer.
With Chelsea still being linked with several other names to boot, we take a look at five Blues transfer targets who could end up following Rahman to West London in the remainder of the transfer window.
