Ghana's Baba Rahman on Schalke radar

The Ghana youth defender is being monitored by scouts from some top Bundesliga clubs and EPL outfits including Manchester City and Arsenal

German Bundesliga giants Schalke 04 are considering a summer move for Ghana youth international Baba Abdul Rahman.

Rahman, who currently plays for German side Greuther Furth after joining them last summer on a five-year contract, is attracting interest with his performance from top clubs in the German top flight.

Reports in German newspapers say the Bundesliga outfit is keeping a close eye on the defender to decide on signing him in June during the summer transfer window.

The 18-year-old has made seven Bundesliga appearances for the Cloverleaves this season under head coach Mike Büskens.

English sides Manchester City, Arsenal and Italian Serie A club Parma are also said to be keeping tabs on the fullback.

With 12 games to the end of the season, Rahman’s Greuther Furth are battling for survival in the relegation zone with TSG Hoffenheim and FC Augsburg.
