Report: Liverpool and West Ham want Chelsea's Nathan Ake, could cost £10m

Maribor Goal Defence v Chelsea

Watford loanee Nathan Ake could be sold by Chelsea for around £10m this summer.

According to The Telegraph, Liverpool and West Ham United are interested in signing Watford loanee Nathan Ake, with Chelsea attempting to sell him for £10m this summer.

Ake, 21, left Feyenoord's academy in 2011 at the age of only 15, joining Premier League giants Chelsea in the hope of becoming a star at Stamford Bridge.

The left back has so far made just 12 first team appearances for Chelsea, and after a loan spell with Reading last season the Dutchman has been farmed out to Watford this season.

Now, Ake is a key part of the Watford team, and has been a mainstay under Quique Sanchez Flores after some fantastic performances this season.

Ultimately, Ake may need to leave Chelsea permanently in order to play first-team football on a regular basis, and the Blues are allegedly willing to cash in this summer to the tune of £10m, according to The Telegraph.

It's stated that, whilst Watford are keen to land Ake permanently, Premier League rivals Liverpool and West Ham United are also keen, with Jurgen Klopp and Slaven Bilic seemingly keen to add more options in defence.

However, it's also suggested that no decision is likely to be made on Ake's future until Antonio Conte arrives as Chelsea boss this summer, but if Liverpool, West Ham or Watford offer the alleged £10m asking price, Ake may end up being sold before Conte heads to Stamford Bridge.
