The Daily Star reported earlier this month that Tottenham Hotspur were interested in signing Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake, with continued doubts over the future of Toby Alderweireld.
The Cherries star is one of the most in-form players in his position in the Premier League right now, having played a big part in their rise to sixth position in the top-flight table.
The Daily Star reports that the south coast outfit would likely demand at least £40m – double what they paid to sign him from Chelsea in 2017 – to even consider selling him, and it remains to be seen whether Daniel Levy and the club would be willing to pay that fee.
Meanwhile, Chelsea fringe man Andreas Christensen has been expressing his frustrations over a lack of first-team football under Maurizio Sarr, and suggested that he will need to evaluate his future if he continues to not be picked in the starting XI – he hasn’t played a single minute of Prmeier League football this term.
The 22-year-old showed during the previous campaign under Antonio Conte – as well as during a loan spell with Borussia Monchengladbach – the defensive qualities that he has and how good he is in possession, and he would surely be a brilliant buy for someone if he did end up leaving Stamford Bridge.
We at Football FanCast suggested that he would be a better signing for the north London club than Ake and wanted Spurs fans to vote on our poll to tell us whether they agreed with our view, but remarkably a majority 55% would rather get the Dutchman, as you can see from the results below.
It is certainly confusing in many ways given Christensen has plenty of Champions League experience in his locker, but Tottenham supporters obviously like what they have seen from Ake and feel he has a bigger future ahead of him.
