Nathan Ake developed as Chelsea as a youngster before being sold by Bournemouth in 2017.
Chelsea fans have suggested that buying Nathan Ake could be an option for Frank Lampard.
Chelsea’s transfer ban could come to an end in January, or at the very latest next summer.
“I don’t know what Ake would cost for Chelsea to buy him back but if I was them I would seriously consider it,” he said.
And Chelsea fans agree with the pundit, as they feel Ake could be an excellent signing.
If Frank goes with a back 3…. he would be ideal with Rudi and Tomori.— zigger zagger (@zagger_zigger) September 24, 2019
Sell Christiansen and bring him back— Dan (@DC__1905) September 24, 2019
Would sell Zouma and buy Ake, it would be mother HG slot filled. I would stick with Christensen for the time being, still think he can make it.— Stephen Terry (@911tez) September 24, 2019
So underrated, would have him back tomorrow— Tom Miles™ (@TMiles17) September 24, 2019
I agree Mark we should never of sold him i think he is one of the most contestant defenders in the league i would take him over Zouma— Jimboburrell (@GULLITFANCFC) September 24, 2019
I would probably take him over Christensen & Zouma. Christensen hasn’t won me over at all. Aké scores goals also. I’d take him back. Aké,Rudiger,Tomori as a back 3. Aké could even play LB.— Reevesy (@DTReevesy) September 24, 2019
Would take him and sell Zouma/Christensen.— Johannes Kemppainen (@Jaukkr13) September 24, 2019
I would take him over Zouma he’s by far more stable and consistent.— Fadel Tayar (@TayarFadel) September 24, 2019
Ake spent five years at Chelsea as a youngster, but was only given limited game time at Stamford Bridge.
Since moving to Bournemouth in 2017 the Dutch international has gone on to prove his worth, and is now regarded as one of the best defensive talents in the Premier League.
Ake is still only 24, so theoretically still has his best years ahead of him, and Chelsea have a buy back clause which means they can get him for £40 million (Telegraph).
If he was to move to Chelsea he could offer Lampard’s side further depth at centre-back.
At the moment Fiyako Tomori, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Kurt Zouma are among the players competing for a place in Chelsea’s defence.
