Chelsea and Schalke are negotiating a move for out of favour left-back Baba Rahman ahead of a potential move this month.

As quoted by the Daily Mail, Schalke’s sporting director Christian Heidel revealed that discussions are ongoing between his side and the Blues, as they look to offload the defender.

“Baba has now been fully training for two weeks. We are in talks with Chelsea and the doctors of both clubs are in exchange.”

The 23-year-old has not been a success with Chelsea and has recently been recovering from a serious knee injury, which has kept him out of action since February last year.

Christian Heidel, Schalke sporting director, confirmed the negotiation on Thursday according to a tweet from the club. "We are in talks with Chelsea FC about signing Baba Rahman for next season," Heidel said.

Chelsea are now well-stocked at full-back, though, and it seems as though Rahman is now surplus to Antonio Conte’s requirements at the club.

Although Rahman is stated to have impressed Conte since making his return from the injury, a loan move away is cited as likely by the Daily Mail, as Schalke continue to pursue the Ghanaian.

Porto left-back Alex Telles on Chelsea's radar .
Much like it was in the summer, adding a new left-back to his Chelsea squad is a priority for Antonio Conte during the transfer window. With just Marcos Alonso in his ranks with both Baba Rahman and Kenedy set to leave the club on loan after falling out-of-favour, Conte is scouring Europe for a potential January recruit. After baulking at Juventus’ asking price for Alex Sandro, the London Evening Standard notes that the Blues are admirers of Porto fullback Alex Telles, but see £20m-rated Emerson Palmieri of Roma a more logical signing, despite interest from Juventus and Liverpool. Telles arrived in European football in January 2014 when he joined Galatasaray in a £5.5m deal from Gremio, and after 18 months with the club he joined Inter Milan on a season-long loan for the 2015/16 season before joining Porto in the summer of 2016 for £5.9m. Uncapped by Brazil, the 25-year-old left-back has Champions League experience and is a rather attacking fullback with experience of playing in a wing-back system which fits Chelsea’s criteria, but whether they could be tempted into a move for the defender remains to be seen.
