Man City Agrees Deal To Sign Nathan Ake From Bournemouth

Manchester City are set to sign Netherlands defender Nathan Ake from Bournemouth after agreeing a £41 million ($53 million) deal, according to British media reports today. 

The Etihad side are reported to have negotiated a £40 million fee with relegated Bournemouth, with the deal potentially rising by a further £1 million depending on clauses.

Ake's likely arrival at the Etihad Stadium comes after City endured a poor season defensively following the departure of Vincent Kompany to Anderlecht last year.

Hampered by a long-term injury to Aymeric Laporte and the disappointing form of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, City boss Pep Guardiola was forced to deploy Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho at centre-back.

City never looked settled at the back and that weakness played a key role in Liverpool ending their two-year reign as Premier League champions.
Ake had been one of Bournemouth's best players since joining from Chelsea in 2017.
