After losing their star center-back Antonio Rudiger to La Liga Champions, Real Madrid, Premier League giants, Chelsea are now understood to be closing in on a deal to sign Manchester City promising defender, Nathan Ake in a potential £40million agreement.
Ake, 27 has found himself down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium under the watch of Pep Guardiola despite the Spanish tactician alluring him to the club two years ago from Premier League side, AFC Bournemouth in a whooping £41million deal.
However, the Blues' head coach Thomas Tuchel sees him as the perfect player to lead his defensive line at the Stamford Bridge with the German being a long-time admirer of his top notch qualities at the back.
Meanwhile, Sevilla star Jules Kounde remains a defensive priority for the London club with talks between them and the Spanish side believed to be ongoing. And what's more, Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly is also being closely monitored by the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League winners.
