Abdul Rahman Baba's agent has quashed speculation that his client rejected the chance to join Chelsea, Express Sport has reported.
After a very successful season in the Bundesliga, the 20-year-old attracted interest from a number of top European clubs including Chelsea, Arsenal, Roma, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus.
Reports claimed that the youngster is not interested in a move to Stamford Bridge because he would not feature regularly in Jose Mourinho's squad.
But agent Sascha Empacher has rubbished the claims.
"No, that’s not true," Empacher said when asked if the player rejected a move to Chelsea.
"It is the classic example of bad investigative journalism.
"Many big European clubs are interested in Baba, but they do not want to be named.
"Do Augsburg want €18-20m [£12.5m-14m]? Yes, that is correct.
"There is a lot of competition for the player. If a side is interested, then they have to make an offer to the club."
