Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman has been linked with a loan move to Bundesliga side Schalke this January, where he was last season before rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on international duty.
When asked about reports linking Rahman with Schalke, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte refused to rule out a loan move to Schalke for the Ghanaian international.
“Baba is recovering from a bad injury,” Conte said.
“I had the possibility to see him in training with us only once or twice. He wasn’t ready to have a full training session with us.
“Now he is recovering and it could be an interesting option for the player, to try to recover with them. For sure, he is not ready in this moment to play, otherwise Baba Rahman would stay with us in my squad.”
