Bournemouth have accepted a deal from Manchester City in the region of £41 million for centre-back Nathan Aké, according to Sami Mokbel from the Mail.
The Dutch defender is now set to enter personal terms with the club over his contract and any other bonuses – with a deal expected to be completed this week.
City are reportedly trying to get their business done early this transfer window, with the aim to bring in two centre-backs and a Leroy Sané replacement out wide. Yesterday, the deal to bring Ferran Torres to the club looked to be nearing it’s conclusion – and now its the turn of Aké.
The 25-year-old will join the club following a stellar season with Bournemouth – despite their relegation. The left sided centre-back could be back-up for Aymeric Laporte but Fabrizio Romano has also reported that due to the talks with Kalidou Koulibaly stalling, this could be Guardiola’s key capture.
