Chelsea defender Nathan Ake is close to joining AFC Bournemouth, according to The Sun.

The Sun believe that Cherries boss Eddie Howe failed with an £18M bid to sign Ake on a permanent basis in the January transfer window, but has revived his interest this summer, and it looks as though he is going to get his man.

As per The Sun, Bournemouth are close to completing the signing of Ake from the Premier League champions, and Antonio Conte will receive £20M into his transfer fund in exchange for the Dutchman’s services.

The Sun note that Ake is expected to put pen-to-paper on a move to the Vitality Stadium in July when he returns from his holidays.

Ake has been at Chelsea since he was sixteen-years-old. If The Sun are correct in their report, it looks as though he is going to be the latest academy player who was unable to reach his full potential in blue.

  1. We are not serious as a club, why sell your future at the age of 22 and go for a 30 years old Bonuci its really sickening. Our people in charge of football are not doing us a anyngood especially Emelano

  2. So bad. This is point Chelsea are going to loose total being champion again be selling some potential player like Ake.

  3. I really am failing to understand our clubs youth policy. Alex Ferguson had youth players in and out of the first team making several changes every game and still won a multitude of trophies. Someone at Chelsea has the worst business acumen ever and it’s been happening for years. 32m for Shevchenko, 50m for Torres and that’s just 2, let Magic go for 5m and buy him back for 21m?????? …….and now buy Lukaku for 18m, sell for 28m and god knows how much we’ll pay now. Bloody idiots are running our club…..or is that ruining????

    • Eddie I agree completely, these so called board members especially Emenalo are not helping the club for the long haul. They are immediate gratification high priests and priestesses! It pains to see our youth academy players go.
