Chelsea are are closing in on the signing of FC Augsberg star Baba Rahman this summer, according to various sources.

The Blues are looking at the Ghana international as a potential replacement for Filipe Luis, who is keen to leave the champions and is wanted by former club Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan.

Augsberg are prepared to cash in on their prize asset, who was regarded as the best left back in the Bundesliga last season. 

New reports today have suggested that Chelsea had stolen a march on their competitors with Rahman's agent flying into London today to conduct talks following a £10.6m bid.
