Arsenal Set To Beat Chelsea To MAJOR Signing, Mourinho Annoyed

Arsenal is showing they have deep wallets and intend to use it as they explore the market in search of able players to swell their ranks. This quest has seen them hit Germany in an effort to beef up its defence line.  The player that has entered the scope of their guns is Augsburg defender Baba Rahman, so reports Calciomercato.com.

The Ghanaian left-back is believed to interest Wenger and galvanized by the recent signing of Petr Cech is hoping they can convince the young man to join their quest for the Premier League. Wenger may have stolen a march on all others, but he may have to work quickly as Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho has not feigned interest in the 20 year old according to the daily mail.

AS Roma and Juventus are also said to be in the hunt for the young African defender, though Rahman seems to be interested in a summer move to England. Nacho Monreal is the player whose position is threatened by the acquisition of Baba Rahman. Athletic Bilbao are watching developments on the side line and preparing a £5.6 million bid in the hope that it would be enough to lure the Spaniard back to Spain. However, should the Rahman deal go sail through, Wenger may not be disposed to letting Monreal leave this summer.

Rahman switched SpVgg Greuther Fürth for Augsburg and made 31 league appearances as the club secured 5th place, their highest ever finish in the Bundesliga.
