Deal Close: Chelsea closing in on fifth signing of summer with medical imminent

baba rahmanMetro have Chelsea fans looking up eagerly here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to be under the impression that the club are about to sign Baba Rahman.

The Blues have of course allowed Filipe Luis to return to Atletico Madrid and will look to bring in a back up to Cesar Azpilicueta – and as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, not only do they need a back up option on the left hand side of their defence, but they could do with one on the right flank as well – unless they plan on using Cesar Azpilicueta there should Branislav Ivanovic get injured.

We think it will be incredibly hard for Rahman to displace Azpi, who has gone on to become one of the best left backs in Europe.

A small group of Blues fans over by the dartboard here in the Tavern are excited about the prospect of signing the highly-rated Ghana star, and feel he could be a perfect long-term solution in the left-back position.

Chelsea fans…… Are you happy with this signing? Will Azpi ever be dropped? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
