Mallorca ace Iddrisu Babahas been lined up as a replacement for countryman Thomas Partey who is tipped to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, GHANASoccernet.com reports.
The 24-year-old will fit the bill at the Metropolitan Wanda because of his physicality and craftiness.
He is under contract at the Iberostar Estadi until 2024 and was a key member of Vicente Moreno’s side.
Baba, the Ghana international, started all the 25 matches he featured in before the suspension of the league.
Partey is tipped to leave the Colchoneros when the transfer window is re-opened.
He is being sought after by English Premier League side Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain.
