- The left-back has enjoyed his last loan spell at France and has no desire to return.
- His Chelsea contract ends in 2020.
- Marseille have made a £5m bid for him.
The Sun report that Chelsea forgotten defender Baba Rahman is close to a permanent £5m transfer to the Ligue 1 side Marseille.
The left-back joined Chelsea in 2015 and he has just 15 appearances in a Blue shirt. Since then he has been at loan spells in Augsburg and, most notably, at Schalke.
Last season Baba Rahman has made 11 appearances at Ligue 1 side Reims, capping his spell with a goal and an assist in the final game of the campaign against champions PSG.
Baba Rahman's contract at Chelsea expires in the summer of 2020. Last month he revealed his desire for the Blues to send him to another club in France for the next campaign.
He told Goal: "My stay in France has been perfect. It is very likely I will stay in France for next season but all depends on Chelsea and my representative.
"I am not going back to Reims but I may join another Ligue 1 club."
