Bournemouth are reportedly closing in on the permanent signing of Chelsea defender Nathan Ake, who spent part of last season on loan at the Vitality Stadium.

Chelsea defender Nathan Ake has reportedly moved closer to sealing a return to Bournemouth this summer.

Ake impressed during a loan spell at the Vitality Stadium during the first half of last season, before he was recalled by Blues head coach Antonio Conte in January.

However, upon his return, he was limited to three starts in the FA Cup and 98 minutes of action in the Premier League, leaving Conte with a decision to make over his future.

According to The Sun, Bournemouth have made a £20m offer to sign the Netherlands international on a permanent deal and it has been suggested that the league champions will accept their bid.

Ake has made a total of 17 appearances during his time at Stamford Bridge, with loan spells being spent at Reading, Watford and the Cherries.
