Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman is close to joining Bundesliga side Schalke on loan according to the German club’s sporting director Christian Heidel.
“I expect a decision to be taken in a relatively short term”, Heidel said to German outlet Reviersport via Goal.
“Many things are already exchanged between Chelsea and us. Now I’m waiting for an answer from Chelsea to my most recent email.
“It’s not certain yet if the loan can be for 18 months.”
