Transfer News: Forgotten 27-year-old Chelsea star has offers to leave the club this summer
Baba Rahman has had offers to leave Chelsea, according to the latest transfer news.
Baba Rahman, a Chelsea misfit, has had offers to leave the club, according to transfer news from Fussball Transfers (via Football.london). PAOK Saloniki has expressed an interest in bringing the Ghanaian back to the club. There are also offerings from the United Kingdom and France.
In the summer of 2015, Baba Rahman moved from the Bundesliga to the Premier League after a standout season in the German top division. Rahman made 23 appearances for the Blues during the 2015-16 season, although he fell totally out of favor following Jose Mourinho’s departure from the club in December.
Since then, the Ghanaian has spent time on loan at Schalke in the Bundesliga on two consecutive occasions, as well as on loan at Reims in France and Mallorca in Spain.
In the three years since he was released by Chelsea, the Ghanaian’s career has been on a downhill trajectory, with the left-back unable to get regular first-team football during his loan stints at various clubs throughout Europe. The player spent the second part of last season on loan at PAOK Saloniki, and he has now returned to his former club.
Now, the left-back may finally be given the opportunity to depart Stamford Bridge for the last time. According to reports, he has had numerous offers from clubs, one of which is from PAOK Saloniki (Greece). The remaining players are thought to come from teams in England and France, according to reports. The defender has one year left on his contract with the Premier League champions.
The present state of Chelsea means that Baba Rahman is a long way down the pecking order. Ben Chilwell was lured in for a large sum of money and has been the top option for the position. Even elite players such as Emerson and Marcos Alonso have struggled to find opportunities to play. He needs to be a starter at a club when he is 27 years old. It is undeniable that this will not take place at Chelsea.
