Liverpool & West Ham both keen on Chelsea ace… Conte will have final call on transfer

Liverpool and West Ham are both keen on Nathan Ake, however his future at Chelsea following his loan move to Watford will not be decided until Guus Hiddink’s successor is in place, according to reports from The Telegraph.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a fine season with the Hornets, playing a key role in the Hertfordshire outfit’s impressive first campaign back in the Premier League, while also helping them to the FA Cup semi-finals.

His form has led some to suggest that he could be of use to his parent club, even though Chelsea have a patchy record at best when it comes to bringing through youth prospects.

But reports claim that he may be afforded a role at the club under their next boss, likely to be Antonio Conte, even though Liverpool and West Ham are keen on him.

There has been no final decision made yet, with the Londoners keen to see if he is a player wanted by the Italian, but even if he is moved on they will demand a fee of over £10m, with the Reds and the Hammers joined by a host of German sides in their interest in Ake.
