It’s no secret that we need a fullback after the departure of Filipe Luis to Atletico.
‘Til now, we have been linked to Baba Rahman for the better part of the summer while, Alex Telles and more recently Danny Rose (What?) have also been linked to the Blues. However, there’s no denying that Baba Rahman is most attractive option on the market right now, and that’s why, according to his agent, we apparently made an “attractive” offer to the Ghanaian to persuade him to London:
“Chelsea made an attractive offer. It is Baba’s dream to play for a top club. He would like to take this opportunity.”
The deal, however, seemed to have stalled for some unknown reasons but as it turns out today, Baba Rahman has already worked out the personal agreements with the Blues. As per Baba’s agent:
“It is only the clubs that have to find an agreement. We on our side are agreed.”

The personal terms have been agreed and it’s only the clubs who have to settle out a deal. Reports are suggesting that Blues are dishing out as much as 17 Million Pounds for the services of the youngster. Given the “crazy market” and the fact that Baba is still 21 with a huge amount of potential, the deals looks just fine to me.
We are in a dire need of a fullback! An injury to Azpilicueta/Ivanovic and we are screwed! Hopefully, he joins the squad soon enough to provide extra protection at the back.
