Manchester City hold talks with Bournemouth over a deal for Nathan Ake as Pep Guardiola looks to add £40m man in defensive rebuild

Manchester City have held talks with Bournemouth over a deal for defender Nathan Ake.

Discussions are at an early stage with City assessing their options as they look to add four new players this summer with defence a priority.

No bid has yet been received by Bournemouth.

Ake, who is valued around £40million, also has interest from former club Chelsea and is among the centre backs being considered by Manchester United.

The 25-year old has long been considered by City as he can cover at left back and counts as a homegrown player.

They have also discussed Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli, Diego Carlos of Sevilla and Leicester City left back Ben Chilwell.

Talks are also ongoing with Valencia over a deal for £40m-rated Spain winger Ferran Torres, 20.

City are also continuing to invest in youth with Gremio’s highly rated 17-year old midfielder Diego Rosa a target. 

The Brazil youth international could arrive for around £4.5m but would not be registered until January owing to his age.
