Chelsea are on the verge of signing Augsburg defender Baba Rahman in a £17.6m deal, but just how have Blues fans reacted?
Blues boss Jose Mourinho has been keen to add a defender to his squad, despite the fact Chelsea had the Premier League’s best defensive record last season.
Felipe Luis left Chelsea after one season to sign with Atletico Madrid, and the Blues have been looking to fill the void at left-back since.
It is still unknown if Rahman will become the starting left-back, but the transfer fee indicates Chelsea have big plans for him.
However, they have still not given up on their pursuit of Everton defender John Stones, as they are reportedly ready to make a third bid worth £30m.
They previously had bids worth £20m and £26m rejected, and Everton have set their asking price to £34m.
The reaction to the imminent signing of Rahman has been mixed to say the least…
Baba Rahman Is Good Buh does He score????
