German club Schalke have officially submitted a bid for Chelsea out-of-favour defender Baba Rahman.
The 23-year-old defender who has spent last season on a loan deal at Schalke has been strongly linked with a return to Veltins Arena on a permanent basis.
Ghanaian left-back first season with Schalke was cut short due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury during his international duty.
However, in a sign of strong faith, Bundesliga giants have refused to give ou African defenders jersey number and have assured him enough time to recover from the fitness fully.
Ac Milan and Everton all have enquired about Rahman. However, it seems like his mind had already been made up over his future, and he wants to make a return to Schalke.
Ghana international star has joined Chelsea back in 2015 for a fee of £14 million, potentially rising to £22m.
Baba Rahman has started his career at Dreams FC, he has played in the Ghanaian Premier League with Asante Kotoko back in 2012.
After failing to impress new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte Ghanaian defender has been handed a no.14 jersey at Schalke and likely to remain in Bundesliga.
