Nathan Ake

Nathan Ake could make a sensational return to Chelsea this summer as the Premier League giants are said to be ‘in advanced talks’ with Man City over a potential deal.

The Blues have stepped up their pursuit of Ake amid fears Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt could choose Bayern Munich over a move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are also said to be considering a move for Sevilla centre back Jules Kounde – who they came close to signing last summer, according to The Times.

Thomas Tuchel is eager to add defensive reinforcements to his squad for the 2022-2023 campaign after Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger left this summer.

Chelsea identified De Ligt as their primary target for the current window and even offered Timo Werner as part of the deal.

However, they were unable to reach an agreement with Juventus. As a result, Bayern Munich have now overtaken the Blues in the race to sign De Ligt.

Therefore, Tuchel has turned his attention to Ake – who is said to be open to a return to Stamford Bridge.
