Baba Abdul Rahman is reportedly keen on a move to Chelsea

Chelsea look set to abandon their plans of signing Ghana defender Baba Abdul Rahman as they weigh up a move for Galatasaray?s Alex Telles.

The English champions are unwilling to top up an initial offer to make the ?15m asking price of Augsburg to sign Rahman.

Chelsea are looking to sign a replacement for Felipe Luis who has departed to rejoin his former club Atletico Madrid.

But Augsburg?s demands for the Ghana international appear exorbitant for the Blues ? forcing them into looking at alternatives.

Contact has thus been made with Galatasaray to sign the Brazilian who holds an Italian passport instead.

Telles will reportedly cost Chelsea ?8m which is seen as a good bargain instead of the ?15m being demanded by Augsburg for Baba Rahman.
