​Chelsea switch focus to Man City defender Ake

Manchester City's Nathan Ake is a key target for Chelsea this summer.

The Blues are keen on Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt as well.

However, the Daily Mail suggests that Chelsea are worried that Bayern Munich may be the favourites to land Dutch centre-half de Ligt.

If that is the case, then Chelsea will turn their attention to his countryman Ake.

Juventus want a fee of around £68.9 million for the young defender.

The Blues are desperate to sign defenders this summer, as they lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen on free transfers.

Ake was a Chelsea player as a youngster, joining in 2011 and eventually leaving in 2017, having spent most of that time on loan at other teams.
