Chelsea & Arsenal battling for £14m defensive ace

Chelsea and Arsenal, as well as Manchester City, are chasing FC Augsburg’s impressive left-back Abdul Baba Rahman, who will cost around £14m, according to reports from The Guardian.

The Ghanaian star was one of the standout performers in the Bundesliga last season, with his heroics in defence key in his side’s shock Europa League qualification-winning campaign.

Baba Rahman went in for more tackles than any other player in the division last season, which has led to his competitive and feisty edge being praised by fans.

The 21-year-old only joined his current side last year, but his talent already appears to be too great for the minnows to hold down, with a number of big clubs circling.

Among the pack are Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City, who are all interested in the young African.

Augsburg are reluctant to do a deal on the cheap and are holding out for a fee of £14m.
