Chelsea could complete this two transfer deal this summer

Fresh from securing a top 10 finish in The Premier League, Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe is looking at major reinforcements for next season and has set his sights on Chelsea pair, Nathan Ake, 22 and Asmir Begovic, 29 as he looks to ensure The Cherries topflight status for yet another season.

The Mirror reports that Howe will sanction a £40m move for the pair in the summer. The pair have struggled for game time this season under Antonio Conte, and are looking to move to improve their careers.


Ake, the highly impressive youngster was on loan at The Vitality Stadium in the first half of the season, making of series of eye-catching performances before being recalled by Conte to cover for the exit of Ivanovic and Mikel who left in January.

Ever since his arrival at Stamford Bridge, Asmir Begovic has played second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois and is looking to move to another topflight club, in the favour of playing regularly.


The Bosnian looked set to move in January, but Conte stopped the deal going through as he felt there was no chance to sign another goalkeeper to replace the former Stoke man.

Bournemouth are regularly looking to improve, and in Eddie Howe, they have a manager with the knack of improving players, and has set his sights on John Terry and Jermain Defoe.
