Tottenham are interested in signing the Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake this summer.
The former Chelsea man has done well for Eddie Howe’s side since joining them and he has the quality to play for a bigger club.
According to The Sun, the Londoners are ready to submit a £40m bid for the defender.
It will be interesting to see if they can agree on a fee with Bournemouth. The Cherries are under no pressure to sell and they will demand a premium.
Ake has a lot of potential and he could develop into a top player under Mauricio Pochettino. It remains to be seen whether Spurs are willing to break the bank for him.
Furthermore, the Cherries paid £20m for him and they will want a significant profit.
As per the report, Chelsea are willing to bring him back to the club as well but the Blues have a transfer ban this summer.
Unless the ban is lifted/postponed, Tottenham are clear favourites to land the 24-year-old.
Some of the Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the report. Here are some of the reactions from earlier.
Good shout if Toby leaves. We already have Sanchez and Foyth as right footed centre backs. Bringing in Ake can be long term Vertonghen replacement too

Not good enough

He’s not fit to lace Tobys boots. He might be better when he’s older howevet at the moment Toby is head and shoulders above him so we will be weaker if this goes through.
