Chelsea transfer news: Club scout tells Blues to re-sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth

The Independent Sports 3 weeks ago

Chelsea should re-sign Bournemouth's Nathan Ake according to club scout Piet de Visser. 

The Dutch defender was signed to the Cherries for £20million in June 2017 after a loan period with the south coast side.

Ake made just 17 appearances for the Chelsea senior side before his signing to Bournemouth, where he has already made over 100 appearances. 

Frank Lampard has regularly chosen to play a young side this season with the likes of Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham being given game time. 

The Blues scout believes that Ake could have made a breakthrough into the first team along with the rest of this young talent.

He has only played 36 minutes in a City shirt despite being one of the best full backs in Europe. His time will come, but at the moment he is experiencing the same frustration Danilo endured behind Kyle Walker.
Last season he emerged as one of the best young forwards in Europe at Juventus. He has failed to live up to the hype so far at Everton, but it’s still early in his Premier League career.
His move surprised many when he joined Arsenal from London rivals Chelsea. He has been at fault for numerous goals since his arrival, including a nightmare performance at Anfield. Improvement needed.
The Argentinian's hotly anticipated arrival in London has been blighted by a hip injury that's restricted him to 44 minutes in the Premier League.
When Rondon left St James Park last season, fans were worried they’d struggle to replace him. Joelinton has only managed one goal in his last seven game, however, there have been promising flashes from the Brazilian.
After last season’s 13 goals and 10 assists, Jimenez will no doubt prove a valuable acquisition for Wolves. Just two goals so far this season means he has been underwhelming.
Duffy had been a stalwart in Brighton’ side. Youngster Webster has managed to breakthrough in his place. Barring a poor lapse in concentration against Chelsea he has been solid.
The £72m winger is still adjusting to English football and has yet to recapture his goalscoring form at Lille. However, the signs of his quality are obvious for all to see.
Haller started off slowly. But a brace at Watford set him on his way and he’s now on three goals and one assist. If he can replicate his form from his time in Frankfurt, West Ham will be dangerous.
Earned an England call-up through his performances, after making his loan spell permanent, but hasn't been able to totally sure up Villa's leaky defence.
Has immediately improved United's defence since his impressive debut and adds leadership to a currently wildly inconsistent side.
Due to injury, Djenepo has only managed three appearances for Southampton. He has scored two goals though, and has brought pace and finishing ability reminiscent of Sadio Mane’s time on the south coast.
With the most tackles in the league, Wan- Bissaka has been solid. The only criticism for the young full back? Going forward he could improve.
Has added some invaluable know-how to Palace’s defence. A win at Old Trafford on debut and two clean sheets since then. Good start for the Champions League winner.
On loan from Liverpool, the young Welshman has produced moments of quality, including a long range strike (albeit deflected) at Villa Park and a delightful free kick against the Champions.
The Spaniard has been superb for the most part. He has been instrumental in Arsenal’s midfield. If you want to be cynical, it would be nice to see more in the goals and assist columns.
Has integrated relatively seamlessly into Guardiola's starting eleven and already feels as though he has been part of City's set up for a long time.
Arguably one of the most well rounded midfielders in Europe. It’s early days at Spurs but Ndombele has added goals and security in midfield.
What a bargain £15 million was. Three goals this season and one of few causes for optimism in an abject Man Utd side. Potentially signing of the season if he keeps it up. Plus, he has all the time in the world to develop at 21 years of age.
Superb start from Tielemans since joining the Foxes on a permanent basis. He is level with De Bruyne for completed through balls and has been a huge help to Maddison.

De Visser said to the Dutch newspaper De Volksrant: "Ake should have played for Chelsea by now. He's so good.

"How often does he not score with his head? He has timing and insight. I hope they buy him back.

"That boy is perfect for them and he has played with Lampard."
