Chelsea Football Club have announced the arrival of Augsburg left-back Baba Rahman.
The 21-year-old full-back has agreed to join the club after leaving the Bundesliga side and was announced soon after The Blues‘ 3-0 defeat to Manchester City yesterday.
Rahman arrives as a replacement for Filipe Luis, who left and joined Atletico Madrid earlier in the summer.
After arriving at Stamford Bridge, Rahman spoke to the official club website and revealed his delight at securing the move.
Rahman said: ‘I am very happy to sign for Chelsea, one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I can’t wait to train with my new team-mates and very much looking forward to working with them and MrMourinho.
‘I am also looking forward to having the opportunity to meet the fans as soon as possible.’
Chelsea agreed to pay the Bundesliga side £21million for the left-back.
