Chelsea have reportedly agreed a deal to sign highly-rated Augsburg full-back Abdul Baba Rahman for a fee of around €25m, according to the Metro.
The club re-sold Brazilian star Felipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid earlier this week (via Daily Mail), prompting Jose Mourinho to splash the cash on the Ghanaian left-back as a replacement.
And now, according to German publication SportBild Mourinho has moved quickly to spend the £15.8m he received for the Brazil international to bring Rahman to Stamford Bridge.
The Metro state that the 21-year-old is one of the most sought after young players in Europe right now following an impressive breakthrough season with Augsburg, for whom he made 31 appearances following his move from Greuther Furth in 2014.
Chelsea sign Augsburg left-back Rahman Baba for a fee of more than €25m, according to Sportbild.
