Chelsea wants to activate the "buy back" clause in Nathan Ake's contract, only two years after selling it to Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old is highly regarded by the Blues but could pay £ 40 million to secure his services again – double for what they sold him in 2016.

The Stamford Bridge outfit will weigh up its options for mid-summer, according to the sun.

Center-back duo Gary Cahill and David Luiz will leave the club later this year, so Maurizio Sarri's light on the back disappears as soon as the season is over.

Ake, who is a member of Eddie Howe, attracted the attention of Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United at the end of last year.

Ake has scored three goals in 22 appearances for the Cherries this season and has earned 10 caps for the Netherlands.

The back of the center arrived at the Chelsea Academy at the age of 16, but continued on his way into the senior team before the former boss Antonio Conte considered him redundant.
