Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman is on the verge of ending his nightmare spell at Stamford Bridge, according to The Sun.

Rahman joined Chelsea from Augsburg four years ago for a fee of around £14m but has failed to make an appearance for the Blues after making 23 appearances in his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte sent him out of loan to Schalke in the summer of 2016 and he has failed to make a first-team appearance for the Blues since then.

According to The Sun, Ligue 1 side Marseille are preparing a £5million move for Rahman with Chelsea officials spotted meeting Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta.

Marseille are reportedly interested in signing Rahman having been impressed by the left-back’s loan spell at Stade Reims last season.

Chelsea are reportedly desperate to sell the left-back this summer with the left-back having just one year left on his Chelsea contract.

Injuries and lack of regular game time during his two-and-a-half years at Schalke have hindered the progress of the Ghanaian international.

Frank Lampard’s appointment as Chelsea boss has failed to improve the left-back’s fortunes at Stamford Bridge.

Despite Lampard insisting that everyone began the campaign with a clean slate, Rahman failed to make the pre-season trips to Ireland or Japan.
