Bundesliga side Schalke 04 have confirmed that talks are underway with Premier League champions Chelsea over the future of left-back Baba Rahman.
Goal have reported that Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel has confirmed that the club have entered ongoing negations with the hope of concluding a deal that will see the Ghana international return to the Veltins Arena.
The 23-year-old joined Chelsea in 2015 for £14m following an impressive campaign with Augsburg in Germany, but only went on to feature 24 times following an inconsistent season as Chelsea struggled in the league.
Speaking to Schalke's official website, Heidel confirmed the clubs interest, saying:
However, the deal may not be as simple as it seems as the German club they face competition from Fenerbahce for the signature of the former Greuther Furth defender.
