Chelsea supporters in the Transfer Tavern are waiting expectantly for news of new arrivals at Stamford Bridge.
Our resident Blues fans are aware that their squad is somewhat depleted and they’re hopeful that the club will conclude several deals before the conclusion of the summer transfer window.
One area of the pitch in which the blues are severely depleted is at wing-back. As things stand, the Champions have yet to acquire the services of another wing-back to accompany Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses. While Conte’s need for an RWB is palpable, our landlord believes he should look from within his ranks to provide Marcos Alonso with protection on the left flank.
Abdul Baba Rahman is still recovering from a Cruciate Ligament Rupture he sustained while on loan at Schalke last season, he could be the perfect deputy for Marcos Alonso.
The Ghanaian international registered 23 appearances for Chelsea in the 2015/16 season, before being loaned out to Schalke last season. Despite struggling to assert himself as an established member of Chelsea’s first-team, he did display glimpses of brilliance.
The 23-year-old is a superb crosser of the ball, and he shows great willingness when going forward. In addition to his attacking qualities, Baba is a terrific tackler, and he’s also brilliant at retrieving possession by intercepting the ball.
If Antonio Conte fails to acquire the services of two wing-backs before the conclusion of the transfer window, our landlord believes that Baba is a more than capable deputy to Alonso. Given the right guidance, he could thrive.
