Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake might supposedly be on his way to Manchester City at the end of the season as Pep Guardiola aims to enhance at centre-back
Manchester City remain in conversations with Bournemouth over an offer for defender Nathan Ake, according to a report.
The People failed to change long-serving skipper Vincent Kompany last summer and lost Aymeric Laporte to a long-lasting injury previously this season.
City paid the rate as John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi were not able to sufficiently fill deep space, with boss Pep Guardiola yielding that centre-back had actually ended up being a problematic position.
The Athletic claims that City currently have strategies in location to generate a new long-lasting partner for fit-again Laporte, having actually connected to Bournemouth centre-back Ake.
Nevertheless, the offer might be made complex by a buyback stipulation that Premier League competitors Chelsea are rumoured to have actually placed in his contract when he joined the Cherries 3 years back.
Ake, thought to be valued in the region of ₤40 m, has actually made 116 appearances for Bournemouth in all competitions.
