Chelsea have been linked with a shock move to resign former Chelsea star Nathan Ake.

The Bournemouth centre-back is being considered for a summer switch just two years after leaving.

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

Maurizio Sarri side will weigh up their options for the centre back in the summer, according to the Sun.

Centre back duo Gary Cahill and David Luiz are set to leave the club later this year, leaving Maurizio Sarri light at the back once the season ends.

Ake started at Chelsea’s academy aged 16 but had loan spells at Reading, Watford and Bournemouth before joining the Cherries for £20million.

He is now a key part of the first team but could return to his old club in a £40million deal.

And Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth are now braced for an approach from Chelsea to take back one of their best academy products.

The ten-cap Dutch international has featured in 22 games in all competitions this season, netting on three occasions.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham have all been linked with Ake this campaign.
