According to The Sun, Chelsea will only make a move for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake when Andreas Christensen leaves the club.

Ake has developed into a top class centre-back since leaving Chelsea for Bournemouth and the Blues are keen on triggering the buyback clause for Ake.

Chelsea currently have four centre-backs at the club at the moment – Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori and Andreas Christensen – and one of them must leave the club to create space for Ake.

Christensen is reportedly surplus to requirements and Chelsea are willing to listen to offers for the 23-year-old.

Italian giants AC Milan are reportedly interested in signing Christensen but would prefer a loan deal with an option to buy.
