Harry Maguire’s replacement? Bournemouth tell Leicester Nathan Ake costs £75m – Sky

Harry Maguire to Manchester United

Save for an act of God, Man United will sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

Maguire is set to become the world’s most expensive defender after the 80 million pound deal.

Victor Lindelof is set to partner Maguire at the heart of Man United’s backline.

But how will Leicester replace the England centre-half?

With the transfer window closing on Thursday, Leicester are running against the clock.

Bournemouth tell Leicester that Nathan Ake costs £75m

As confirmed by Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett, Leicester City are keen on signing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

However, the chances of Leicester completing that deal seem remote, as it’s claimed that Bournemouth are demanding 75 million pounds for their Dutch defender.

24-year-old Ake played all 38 Premier League matches for Bournemouth last season, scoring four goals.

Indeed, Ake played 90 minutes in all but one Bournemouth match in 2018/19 – he was subbed in the 81st minute vs Man United.

The Dutch international defender is under contract at Bournemouth until 2022.

Burnley’s James Tarkowski

Another possible option for Leicester is to make a move for Burnley’s James Tarkowski.

However, Burnley have told the Foxes that Tarkowski will cost 40 million pounds.

What about Brighton’s Lewis Dunk?

Previously, Brighton centre-half Lewis Dunk has been linked with a move to the King Power Stadium.

However, Rob Dorsett has claimed that Dunk is not on Brendan Rodgers’ shopping list.
