Bournemouth boss Howe fears losing Arsenal, Chelsea target Ake

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe fears losing Nathan Ake this month.

The Daily Mail says Howe is braced for a late offer for stylish Dutch centre back Ake.

Traore has scored 29 goals in 90 games since joining Lyon from Chelsea back in 2019

The 24-year old has returned to the first team fold after a hamstring injury and was arguably their stand out performer in their defeat at Norwich last Saturday.

Chelsea have a £40m option that lasts until the end of this window on Ake while Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham remain interested.

Despite being linked with Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng, Arsenal are considering younger options for their defence. They would prefer loans but with Champions League qualification wide open may shell out before the end of the month.
