Abdul Rahman Baba will reportedly complete a transfer to Chelsea early next week, according to the Metro website.
Journalist Gianluca di Marzio suggests Blues boss Jose Mourinho will meet with chiefs of the Ghana international’s club, Augsburg, to tie up the formalities on Monday.
Just this week the Bundesliga outfit scotched talk linking the player with a move away, with chairman Jonas Hoffman saying: “We do not need the Baba millions.
“We have a good, solid team here.
“I am very optimistic that Baba will continue his great performances with us.”
