Chelsea star Baba Rahman has emerged as a transfer target for Fiorentina, according to a story.

The 23-year-old joined the West Londoners from Augsburg in 2015 but performed just 15 matches for the Premier League club.

Now back Germany on loan at Schalke 04, Rahman has so far played 13 appearances for the Gelsenkirchen side.

As reported by the Italian outlet La Nazione, Fiorentina are considering a move for the African star in January if Schalke decides to cut his loan short.

Rahman, who has earned 26 caps for the Black Stars, is contracted to Chelsea until 2020.

Meanwhile, Thibaut Courtois has reportedly notified Chelsea that he wants a wage of £205,000 a week to secure a new deal with the Premier League giants.

The 25-year-old replaced Petr Cech as Chelsea’s number one at the start of the 2014-15 seasons after spending three back-to-back campaigns with La Liga side Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014.

The Belgium international’s current contract with the West Londoners will end in the summer of 2019, and it is believed that initial negotiations over an extension have started.

As reported by HLN, Courtois is informed that Real Madrid wants to land him, and the stopper will, therefore, demand a salary hike to become one of the best-paid keepers in the world.

The report suggests that the Belgian wants a £205,000-a-week deal to put him in line with Manchester United’s David de Gea when it comes to profits.

The Belgian star has kept eight clean sheets in 18 games for Chelsea this campaign.
