Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake has emerged as a January transfer target for Manchester United and Tottenham but his former club Chelsea are hoping to thwart any potential deal by offering him a chance to return to Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old defender moved to Bournemouth in 2017, sealing a permanent deal after a couple of loan spells which saw him play for Reading and Watford as well.
Chelsea have reportedly inserted a buy-back clause is Ake’s contract and would be willing to exercise it during the January transfer window.
Nathan Ake has impressed for Bournemouth this season and former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho appears to be extremely keen to bring him to Old Trafford. The Red Devils have struggled in defence in recent times and Ake would surely be a much-needed upgrade.
Still, the Telegraph claims Chelsea will not be giving up on the option to re-sign their former youngster should Bournemouth decide to sell him once the transfer window opens.
