The UK Telegraph reports that Chelsea are in talks with Manchester City over a move for both Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake.
Sterling is the Blues’ top priority this summer, with Thomas Tuchel eager for the club to sign the England international.
Although Tuchel wants to bolster his attack, he is also looking to bring in defenders following the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.
Chelsea have now turned to their former defender, Ake, as part of their summer rebuild.
Ake made his Chelsea debut back in 2012 and has made 17 senior appearances for the club.
In 2017, he joined Bournemouth in a £20 million deal, having impressed on loan the previous season.
Following Bournemouth’s relegation in 2020, the Dutchman joined City in a deal worth £40 million.
It is believed Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly contacted City on Monday to discuss their valuation of both Sterling and Ake, with the Blues keen to sign both players.
