Chelsea return for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake back on

A Chelsea return for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake could be back on.

BILD says RB Leipzig are lining up a £25million bid for Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen, potentially paving the way for Ake's return to Stamford Bridge.

Leipzig are keen to sign Danish centre-back Christensen and think £25m could be enough to tempt Chelsea boss Frank Lampard into letting him leave midway through the season.

The Sun reports Chelsea were keen to enact their £40m buy-back option on Bournemouth defender Ake but would not push through the deal with Christensen still on the wage bill.

Cherries ace Ake has matured into a top class centre-back since leaving the Blues to join Bournemouth permanently in 2017 for £20m but could rejoin his former club if Christensen were to depart.
