Remember Ricardo Rodriguez? The left-back we were heavily linked with at the beginning of the transfer window? Well, now Chelsea want him.
The Wolfsburg man was practically parading around at the Euros in an Arsenal kit, if the media were to be believed. In fact, Klaus Allofs even confirmed that the defender wasn’t going to stay with the Bundesliga club.
However, the media speculation quickly died down and the last stories linking us to the 23-year-old are from June.
Now, Chelsea are being linked in the German press, as Antonio Conte gave Baba Rahman to Schalke and they need a replacement.
The south London club are supposedly ready to offer £22m for the Switzerland international.

Chelsea need him and he is obviously willing to leave Wolfsburg. What’s more is that the German club also seem open to letting him go, as long as someone meets his valuation, which I’m sure the Blues can.
