Bournemouth Confident About Signing £20m-rated Chelsea Defender Nathan Ake

share on:

Bournemouth are increasingly confident that they are close to agreeing a deal to sign Chelsea defender Nathan Ake.

Southampton and Leicester are also interested in signing the 22-year-old centre-back.

Nathan Ake, valued in the region of £20m, spent the first of last season on loan at Bournemouth before being recalled in January.

Eddie Howe later launched an £18m bid for the Dutch defender that month, which was instantly rejected.

But Bournemouth are now set to snap-up the ex-Watford ace with a £20m-plus offer after missing out on Chelsea legend John Terry.

He is expected to sign a deal with the South Coast club when he returns from his holiday in July.

A source said: “It should be done when the player gets back from his holiday next month.

“Others clubs have been taking a look at him, but Bournemouth look to be in pole position at present.”
