The deal to take promising left-back Abdul Baba Rahman from German Bundesliga side FC Augsburg to Chelsea in the English Premier League has finally been concluded. The 21-year old Ghana international joins the Blues for a fee of £21.7 million after passing his medical today. He will provide an alternative in Chelsea’s defence and might ultimately become the club’s first-choice left-back in the not so distant future, if manager Jose Mourinho decides to shift Cesar Azpilicueta to his favoured right side which is currently occupied under-fire Branislav Ivanovic.
Baba has taken the Bundesliga by storm and was one of Augsburg’s most important squad members on the club’s run to a top six finish in Germany. Here is a look at a selection of his skills.
