Chelsea ‘will have to pay £13m’ for Bundesliga defender – Agent

Abdul Rahman Baba Chelsea

According to the player’s agent, Chelsea will have to pay £13m to land the Augsburg full back, Abdul Rahman Baba. 

The 20 year old Ghana international is considered as one of the best young full backs in Europe and Chelsea are keen to strike a deal.

Chelsea left back Filipe Luis has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and it seems Mourinho is keen to plug the gap immediately.

Baba has put together a string of excellent performances for Augsburg this season and has attracted a lot of interest from the Premier League. The likes of Manchester City and Arsenal are also keen to sign the Ghanian and are in desperate need of full backs.

Baba’s agent Sascha Empacher confirmed to LaRoma24 that the interested parties will have to part with £13m to land his client this summer.

“Many big European clubs are interested in Baba, but they do not want to be named,” he said.

“Do Augsburg want €18-20m? Yes, that can be correct.

“There is a lot of competition for the player. If a side is interested, then they have to make an offer to the club.

“Are Roma about to make an imminent offer? I don’t know anything about that at the moment.”

It is believed that Filipe Luis is keen on a move back to Atleti this summer and Baba could be the man to replace him at Stamford Bridge. Signing a quality young full back in Baba would also allow Mourinho to use the ever reliable Cesar Azpilicueta in his natural right back position.
