In what has been a conservative transfer window for Chelsea, Jose Mourinho is keeping his cards close to his chest.
Radamel Falcao has arrived on loan from AS Monaco following his failed stint at Manchester United, while goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has arrived from Stoke City to replace Petr Cech following his move to Arsenal.
However, with Atletico Madrid re-signing Filipe Luis last week, the Chelsea boss was unable to shirk the topic when quizzed on a deficiency at left back, admitting that he remains in the market for reinforcements in that role.
We are trying to sign a left-back.
I don t know if we are any closer, Mourinho responded bluntly.
One player who ticks that box is Augsburg s Abdul Baba Rahman.
