Talented defender is reportedly ready to complete Chelsea transfer deal

Chelsea have been impressive at the back this season, and our landlord doesn’t think that there is any more room for anyone else…

One such player that may be forced to leave the club is Baba Rahman, with the defender not enjoying the best of stints at Stamford Bridge. Having struggled since moving to the club, he was subsequently shifted out to Germany on loan, before an injury ended his tenure earlier this year.

However, with the Ghanian set to return at the end of the season, he could now leave the club again – with Fussball Transfers reporting that the defender is ready to return to Schalke this summer. Significantly, all three parties – from Schalke, to Rahman to Chelsea could reportedly all be ready to get a deal done – making this deal a fairly probable one to take place.

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are pretty pleased with this, given that many are ready to see the back of Baba. He has, for the most part, failed to make an impact in the Premier League – and with the return of Nathan Ake, he is no longer really needed at Stamford Bridge.

At 22-years-old, there is still potential there, but given Conte’s current options and Rahman’s poor tenure – a departure probably makes sense.

Chelsea fans – thoughts?
