The agent of Baba Rahman has claimed that Chelsea have made a “very attractive offer” for his client.
The Augsburg defender has been linked with both Chelsea and Arsenal this summer after an impressive season in the Bundesliga.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is looking for a new left-back after granting Filipe Luis a return to Atletico Madrid and seemingly has his eyes on the 21-year-old.
Rahman’s representative Sascha Empacher has confirmed that the Premier League champions have approached Augsburg and hinted that a deal was close.
“The news is not yet true,” Empacher told Sky Sports. “It is correct that Chelsea have made a very attractive offer to Augsburg but the club is yet to accept it.
“Of course Baba would like to take this opportunity and challenge.”
The Ghana international only joined Augsburg from second-tier side Greuther Furth last summer.
