Chelsea are ready to allow fringe figure Baba Rahman to join Bundesliga side Schalke on loan for the 2015-16 campaign, The Daily Mail report.
The Ghana international moved to Stamford Bridge following impressive performances for Augsburg but has not been given a consistent chance to show what he is capable of for the West London club.
Cesar Azpilicueta has most often been handed the left-back jersey for the Blues and as a result Rahman has largely been a fringe figure since moving to England.
New manager Antonio Conte is ready to customise his squad after arriving at Chelsea, with a fair few players expected to be told that the are not part of the Italian trainer’s plans for 2016-17.
Schalke are keen to take advantage of Rahman’s situation and could offer the Ghanaian more regular first-team football this season
The Gelsenkirchen outfit are ready to land the left-back on an initial 12-month loan deal, with scope for a permanent switch should the year back in Germany prove a success.
