Manchester City agree deal for Ake

AFC Bournemouth v Tottenham Hotspur- Premier League Manchester City Have £41 Million Bid Accepted For Nathan Ake After Agreeing Deal For Valencia's Ferran Torres

Now, City has turned their heads towards Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake.

The Premier League runners-up have reportedly had a 41-million pounds bid accepted by Bournemouth for the centre-back.

According to several reports, including the Athletic, Sky Sports and BBC, the Dutch centre-back is on the verge of joining Manchester City.

This is certainly a statement of intent from City as they look to close the gap on title winners Liverpool ahead of the new season.

The 25-year-old has emerged as a target for several clubs across England following his side's relegation to the English Championship last weekend.

Manchester City and Bournemouth have agreed a €43 deal for Nathan Ake.

If they manage to complete the deal, City would have beaten rivals United to Ake's signature as the Red Devils were also intent on signing him.

Pep Guardiola's side have had their sights on the Dutch worldwide for a while now as they have been looking to bring in another central defender who'll hopefully provide solid competition at the back.

Ake, who played 29 of Bournemouth's 38 games in the Premier League this season, has been capped 13 times by his country and has previously played club football for Chelsea, Watford and Reading.

"I think next season and everything beyond it will take care of itself".

City have also been linked with Valencia winger Ferran Torres with the 20-year-old seen as a potential replacement for German Leroy Sane who joined Bayern Munich earlier this month in a move reported to be worth €45 million plus add-ons.
