Besiktas chasing Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake

Besiktas are chasing Chelsea midfielder Nathan Ake.

The Daily Express says Turkish reports claim Besiktas are interested in signing the 19-year-old prodigy, but Chelsea are unwilling to negotiate a permanent deal.

Ake has been in the match day squad on three occasions this season, and has earned just 104-minutes of Premier League experience during his senior career.

Despite his infrequent selection, Ake hasn't been loaned out to gain more experience, suggesting that Mourinho is an admirer of the Dutch midfield man.

Besiktas have already been linked with various Chelsea stars including Mohamed Salah, Kurt Zouma and Petr Cech but nothing has yet materialised.
