Bournemouth boss Howe insists no offers for Ake

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists no offers have arrived for Nathan Ake.

Ake has been heavily linked with Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal, the latter most recently following the serious injury suffered by Calum Chambers.

Bournemouth are desperate to keep hold of one of their best players, especially given their likely relegation battle this season, and Howe was coy when questioned about it on Friday.

When asked if any formal approaches had been made, he told reporters: "Nothing to report on Nathan (Ake).

"He is recovering well from his injury, we will see when he is back fit."

Ake has been sidelined since December 7 and is expected to be out until late January with an ongoing thigh injury.
