Schalke chief Christian Heidel has revealed Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman wants to join the Bundesliga side this January.
Rahman is working his way to fitness having being sidelined since picking up a knee injury in January.
“The player wants to join us. It is now a matter of principle whether his home club Chelsea wants to relinquish him,” Heidel said as quoted on Tribal Football.
“We are aiming for a longer loan with Baba than with Marko Pjaca, who has come to us from Juventus until the end of the season.”
