After a worrying performance in the Community shield match where they were downed by London rivals Arsenal, and a pre-season schedule that saw the Blues go without winning a single match inside 90 minutes, the arrival of some defensive reinforcements is surely exactly what Mourinho needed.
It was being rumoured for some time that Abdul Baba Rahman, the electric Augsburg full-back who lit up the Bundesliga last term, was in line for a move to Stamford Bridge.
Now, Sky Sports News are reporting that terms between the player and the Premier League champions have been agreed – all that is left is for a fee to be finalised between the two clubs and the 21-year old will officially become a Chelsea player.
In 31 appearances last season, Rahman managed more tackles than any other left-back in the league, a stat that makes any fan put down that pint for a second!
Chelsea Fans….. What do you think? Are you happy with this one? IS he who you need? Let us know below!
