Bournemouth could be prepared to sanction the sale of defender Nathan Ake this winter amid the ongoing interest from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Manchester United.

The 23-year-old joined the Cherries on a permanent basis from Chelsea last summer after making a solid impact for the club on loan during the first half of the 2016/17 season.

Ake has since continued his good run of form with a number of standout performances and according to The Sun, the Cherries may not resist a mid-season sale for their versatile defender.

The Dutchman was recruited from the Blues for a reported fee of £20m last year and the Cherries are seemingly prepared to witness his departure for double of that value.

Despite the widespread interest, Chelsea still have the advantage in the player's pursuit as they are said to have agreed on a buy-back option while parting ways with his services in June 2017.
