Another transfer saga is nearing its end. Unfortunately, it is not Mohamed Salah's, but replacing Filipe Luis with Baba Rahman will be far more important to Chelsea this season than Salah ever was.

According to the London Evening Standard, Rahman's agent, Sascha Empacher, has confirmed that the player has agreed to personal terms with the Blues.

It is only the clubs [Chelsea and Augsburg] that have to find an agreement. We on our side are agreed.

Augsburg have signed another young left-back today, presumably to fill in Baba Rahman's role in their first-team squad, which only added fuel to the transfer rumor. Now, with direct quotes from his agent, we should expect that Chelsea and Augsburg will soon reach an agreement upon fees and terms, so the move can be made official.

Filipe Luis' departure and the lack of an immediate substitute at the left-back position coming from the youth ranks or returning from loan left Chelsea in a dire state. it appears that we have made the move to get one of the most promising players in Europe, thankfully leaving those nasty Danny Rose rumours behind.
