Bournemouth close in on club-record Nathan Ake signing

'I had a great time here last season so I'm really happy to be back, ' said Ake.

Dutch worldwide defender Ake, meanwhile, is set to rejoin Bournemouth for a fee rumoured to be in the region of £20 million, with the 22-year-old having left a lasting impression on Cherries boss Eddie Howe during a loan spell at the Vitality Stadium last year.

New Lyon forward Bertrand Traore claimed it was imperative for his development to leave Chelsea on a more permanent basis following his lucrative transfer.

Paul Mariner feels Jermain Defoe's move to Bournemouth is a great move for both club and player.

There were a couple of wobbly moments at the back but all in all it was a very good start to the tournament from Joachim Löw's men.

Chelsea's Nathan Ake is set to return to fellow Premier League side AFC Bournemouth for an estimated £20 million.

Ake's aptitude in possession will naturally appeal to Cherries manager Eddie Howe, who encourages his teams to play stylishly on the deck. One of his previous loan spells includes a year with Watford, where he was voted Young Player of The Season by the fans for his performances. However, he would only go on to make 5 appearances for the club after his return.

The Blues have already raised around £42m from the sales of Begovic, Juan Cuadrado, Christian Atsu and Bertrand Traore this summer, as they prepare for a spending spree meant to equip Conte with a squad capable of challenging in the Champions League next season.

The Blues are expected to announce some new signings after their new kit deal with Nike officially begins on Saturday, 1 July. Have your say in the comments section below.
