Bournemouth have accepted Manchester City’s £41m bid for defender Nathan Ake, according to Fabrizio Romano. Talks between the clubs over the Netherlands centre-back had begun before the end of the Premier League season.

Pep Guardiola wants him after problems for Kalidou Koulibaly. The confirmation of Bournemouth’s relegation to the Championship on Sunday all but confirmed that the 25-year-old would depart this summer.

Ake joined Bournemouth from Chelsea for a club-record fee of £20m in 2017 and had been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge. And Bournemouth must give Chelsea the chance to match Man City’s £41m bid as part of the deal from 2017.
