Chelsea to step up chase for Bundesliga star following Luis departure

Chelsea are ready to make their move for Augsburg star Abdul Baba Rahman once they complete the sale of Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid, Mirror reports.

Manager Jose Mourinho is said to be open to letting the Brazil international return to his former side after he failed to impress since his £15.8million move to Stamford Bridge last summer.

He has been unable to overtake first choice selection Cesar Azpilicueta to the role and is said to have agreed a three-year deal with the La Liga outfits for a fee around the £15million region.

His exit will pave way for Mourinho to sign 21-year-old Rahman, who impressed with his displays last season and was rated one of the best left-backs in the Bundesliga.

The Ghana international has also attracted interest from Serie A giants Roma in recent months, but is already being tipped to accept a move to join the Premier League champions.
