Chelsea have agreed a deal of £21.7 million with Augsburg to sign left back Abdul Baba Rahman.
Talks between the clubs have been ongoing for weeks, but the detailed agreement will see the Blues pay an initial £14m, before a further £3.5m in bonuses depending on Chelsea’s performances, £700,000 after Rahman completes 20 games and a further £3.5m after he has made 100 appearances.
The Ghana international according to Dailymail.co.uk has agreed a five-year contract and will head to London to complete his medical ahead of being confirmed a Chelsea player later this week.
Baba, as he is known, has been watched by Roma, Arsenal and Manchester City.
The Premier League duo were particularly interested but were concerned at the asking price and understood the player was keen on Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho has been looking for another left back to provide back-up to Cesar Azpilicueta after allowing Filipe Luis to return to Atletico Madrid after just a season at Stamford Bridge.
