Rahman has been linked to both Chelsea, Arsenal and La Liga powerhouse Real Madrid, however, The Mirror reports the Blues are confident of stitching up a deal for the Ghana international.
The report suggests the Bundesliga club value the left-back at £15m and Chelsea are keen to lure the player to Stamford Bridge with it looking likely that Felipe Luis will be sold this summer.
Luis has struggled for playing time since joining from Atletico Madrid due to the excellent form of Cesar Azpilicueta and is being linked with a return to La Liga.
20-year-old Rahman was one of the stars of the Bundesliga season and helped Augsburg finish fifth and claim a spot in next season’s Europa League.
He finished the season as the Bundesliga’s seventh-best player according the league’s official player rankings index.
