Man City in line to sign Chelsea reject

Nathan Ake

North London outfit Chelsea were unable to find a place for young defender Nathan Ake, hence had him sold to Bournemouth after a loan spell.

The rejected player seems to have become a demand for Man City as they are reported to be interested in landing him with talks already opened.

Since the exit of Vincent Kompany, Man City have not been finding it good with their defensive department and will be seeking for all options available to be able to compete and bounce back after losing the EPL title to Liverpool.

Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones have not been giving their best while an option of David Alaba from Bayern Munch is being threatened by his high age demand. The same applies to Napoli’s Kalidou Kalibaly whose transfer fee is also high.

Nathan Ake might be the best option for Man City with manager Pep Guardiola hoping to work with him, having watched him play.

Chelsea have got a buy-back clause on Nathan Ake but that may not be a threat to Man City who are desperate at the moment for a defender.

Nathan Ake could cost £40 million but Man City are positive that Bournemouth will be forced to beat it down if the player desires a move.
