Ake is reportedly worth around £40 million by Bournemouth but the Blues believe he can be signed for cheap if Bournemouth get relegated.

Chelsea sold Ake to the Cherries for £20m ($25m) in 2017 but inserted a £40m ($50m) buyback clause which expires this summer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are actively working towards securing the signing of Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell after meeting Timo Werner’s £54 million (€60m/$68m) release clause at RB Leipzig.
