Chelsea transfer talks confirmed: Schalke chief says agreement could be quick

Abdul Baba Rahman

Bundesliga club FC Schalke are in talks to bring young defender Baba Rahman from Stamford Bridge.

Schalke have never hidden their desire to have the 23-year-old defender at least on loan until the end of the season and continue to send men to London to monitor his progress.

During his previous spell with Schalke, Rahman made 20 appearances during the first half of the 2016-17 campaign.

Rahman, 21, joined Chelsea in 2015 and made 23 appearances in his debut season, which was made hard by Jose Mourinho's sacking just four months after he joined.

Chelsea now has only Marcos Alonso to call upon as a specialist left-back.

Antonio Conte is also keen on Juventus full-back Alex Sandro and Schalke have confirmed they're keen on signing Rahman this month.

FC Schalke's sporting executive Christian Heidel stated that a deal might be soon finalized between the two clubs regarding the sale of the Ghanian.

Baba's injury and following setback in recovery have meant that he's not had any significant football action in nearly a year as he's only been able to join first-team training once or twice since the summer. "For sure, he is not ready in this moment to play, otherwise Baba Rahman would stay with us in my squad".
