This is according to respected journalist Peter Rutzler who works for The Athletic.

Recent reports had claimed that Bournemouth will sell Ryan Fraser for around £10m to £15m and that a swap deal with Liverpool for young winger Harry Wilson is also a possibility.
Welsh international Harry Wilson is on loan at Bournemouth from Liverpool at the moment and he has already scored four goals for the Cherries in the Premier League this season including the strike against Newcastle United during the game which ended in a 2-1 win for the Magpies.
Ryan Fraser was linked with a lot of clubs in the summer including Liverpool.
Other Premier League side like Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United were all linked with the Scotsman after his spectacular outing last season which ended with 14 league assists.
Chelsea Keen To Re-sign 24-year-old Centre Back
Europa League holders Chelsea are reportedly keen to re-sign Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake according to the latest reports coming out of the media in the United Kingdom.
Nathan Ake was at Chelsea until his loan move to Bournemouth was turned into a permanent transfer in the summer of 2017.
The Dutch international centre back initially joined South Coast club Bournemouth on loan at the start of the 2016/17 season while Italian tactician Antonio Conte was still the Blues boss and the player was called back to the Chelsea team with six months of his one-year loan deal gone in January 2017.

Bournemouth paid £20m to sign Nathan Ake from Chelsea later that year and the Telegraph claimed that Chelsea inserted a buyback clause of £40m into the transfer that took the Dutchman to the Vitality Stadium.
Chelsea want to exercise that buyback clause by paying the said transfer fee for him return to West London as the club tries to improve their defensive unit with the addition of new players.
The Blues can sign players now after their remaining one-window transfer ban was canceled upon the appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
Nathan Ake was previously linked with a move to fellow Premier League side Manchester City in the summer.

Ryan Giggs Points Out Two Things Missing In Man United’s Display Against Bournemouth
The Red Devils were condemned to their fourth defeat of the season by struggling Bournemouth who scored the only goal of the game via Josh King’s shot just before half-time.
Despite United’s obvious zeal and efforts to equalize, the goal didn’t come as Eddie Howe’s side held on to the slim victory.
Former United star Ryan Giggs has pointed out two things that were lacking in Solskjaer’s team during the encounter.
According to him, the Red Devils started stronger than their opponents but the strikers lacked concentration during the game which was the reason why they missed some clear-cut chances.

“They started the much better of the sides and when you’re on top and you’re getting five or six attempts you’ve got to hit the target.
“I think there was only Anthony Martial’s weak shot that only hit the target, so that’s about concentration,”
Giggs also said that the team suffered from Paul Pogba’s absence as there was no attacking midfielder to create many opportunities. He claimed that Solskjaer’s men lacked quality at the final third of the pitch and that cost them the three points at the end.
“But just not enough quality in the final third. That’s when this United team struggle – breaking down stubborn defenses. Who’s that creative player playing in the pockets? Who is giving the width, those constant crosses switching the ball?” he concluded
Solskjaer Advised To Sign This Player After Bournemouth’s Defeat
Manchester United manager Solskjaer failed to grab his fourth consecutive victories against Bournemouth as it ended 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
The Red Devils were surprisingly defeated by Eddie Howe’s side as a solitary goal from Joshua King was all that the Cherries needed to condemn the Old Trafford outfits to their fourth defeat of the campaign.
Having seen the same team’s display against Bournemouth, former United star Paul Ince told Solskjaer to make move for Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich in January.
According to Ince while speaking with Paddy Power, Zlatan Ibrahimovic will help young United players learn more goal-scoring tricks while his presence at Old Trafford will have a great impact on the growth of Solskjaer’s relatively young side in no time.

“But I think, if he wanted to, returning to Old Trafford would be the way to go. ‘He’d be great at educating all of these young players that Ole is looking to bring through, an incredible off-pitch influence as well as on the field,” he said.
He further stressed that signing Mario Mandzukic isn’t the best option because the Juventus striker has nothing to offer when it comes to controlling the dressing and motivating the young players.
“They need someone who can control the changing room and be a true leader, and he fits that role. He can show the young players how it’s done. He would be the Godfather of United’s dressing room. I can’t see Mario Mandzukic happening – so why not take Zlatan?” he asked rhetorically.
Ibrahimovich was a top goal-poacher during his days at Old Trafford and United fans wouldn’t mind having him around if that will help in solving the goalscoring problem at Old Trafford.
