Chelsea, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Roma are among the clubs to have been linked with Baba so far this summer, but it was reported last week that the 20-year-old had rejected an approach from Jose Mourinho’s side as he feared he would not be a first-team regular.
However, Baba’s agent Sascha Empacher said: “No, that’s not true. 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.”
