After poaching Premier League champions Chelsea for their second choice goalkeeper, it appears that Bournemouth still has unfinished business with the Blues.
As part of a summer drive that they plan to sign players that would help them maintain their top half finish, the Cherries are back for Chelsea defender Nathan Ake.
The Dutchman spent the first half of last season at the Vitality Stadium and left a huge impression on Eddie Howe so much so that the English manager was angered by Chelsea’s recall of the defender in January. Howe tried to sign him permanently at the end of January transfer window, but the Blues were unwilling to do a deal.
However, according to Guardian Sports, Ake is poised to finally move to the south coast club for a deal worth a club record £20 million. This price shows how much Howe values Ake. But the Blues are also struggling to let Ake leave as he is one of the club’s favourite academy products. Per the source, Chelsea has included a buy-back clause that puts them in a good position to get him back if they want.
