The left-back spent two years with second tier club Greuther Furth, before joining Augsburg for €2.5m last summer.
He established himself as one of the highly-rated Bundesliga players in his age group last season, helping Markus Weinzierl’s side to fifth position.
Rahman becomes Chelsea’s third major recruit of the summer, following the arrival of Asmir Begovic and Radamel Falcao.
