Man City’s £41m Nathan Ake bid accepted & Spurs battle 2 Premier League clubs for Callum Wilson

Man City’s £41m bid for Nathan Ake accepted

Earlier on Thursday, we reported that Man City have begun talks with Bournemouth over Nathan Ake.

That story has since developed, as the BBC, amongst others, have confirmed that Bournemouth have accepted a £41m bid from Man City for their 25-year-old Dutch centre-half.

Ake is presently under contract with Bournemouth until 2022.

In all likelihood, Ake will now join the Sky Blues.

Regarding the possible time-frame for completing the deal, the Bournemouth Echo report:

It is understood the deal could move quickly in the next few days.

 

Does this mean that Man City won’t sign Kalidou Koulibaly?

That seems to be the case.

Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has reported that City have run into “problems” in trying to sign Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli. In addition, readers are told that:

Man City are still angry with Napoli because of Jorginho/Chelsea deal two years ago.

However, the Athletic’s Sam Lee has offered some pushback on suggestions that the chase to sign Koulibaly is over.

He’s told his Twitter followers that City have been looking to sign two centre-backs this summer.

What would Ake’s arrival at Man City mean for Aymeric Laporte?

Most would assume that even if Ake joins Man City, Aymeric Laporte would remain as Pep Guardiola’s first-choice left-sided centre-half.

Could Ake play at left-back for the Sky Blues?

 

Spurs battle 2 Premier League clubs for Callum Wilson

The Bournemouth Echo have also rubber-stamped reports that three Premier League clubs are looking to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

Those teams are West Ham, Tottenham and Newcastle.

It’s unclear which of the sides are leading the race to land the 28-year-old England international at present.

When it comes to a potential transfer fee, Wilson will reportedly cost 20 million pounds.

Wilson scored 8 goals in 35 Premier League matches this season.

He’s currently under contract at the Vitality Stadium until 2023.

 

Four teams are looking at David Brooks

The Bournemouth Echo also reveal that four Premier League sides are looking at signing David Brooks: West Ham, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Leicester.

23-year-old Brooks returned to action following English football’s resumption last month, on the back of a lengthy injury layoff. He played all 9 matches for Bournemouth in their run-in.

Brooks is under contract with the Cherries until 2022.
