BBC Pundit Gareth Brooks has urged Chelsea to seriously consider resigning Nathan Ake from Bournemouth. The Blues sold the Dutchman for £20m to the Cherries two years ago.
Ake made the scoresheet in Bournemouth’s 3-1 win over Southampton this week while Chelsea succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against table-toppers Liverpool.
Writing about the suggestion in his BBC Column of the Week, Brooks stated,
“The shot of Nathan Ake suspended in mid-air having attacked a set piece and buried a bullet header past Angus Gunn in Southampton’s goal was a picture to behold,” he wrote in his BBC Team of the Week column.
“It was not only Bournemouth’s first goal in a historic win against their south coast rivals but a clear indication that the Cherries meant business.”
“I don’t know what Ake would cost for Chelsea to buy him back but if I was them I would seriously consider it.”
Ake has started every game for the Cherries so far this term, helping them to sixth place in the Premier League with 10 points from six games.
Chelsea, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Liverpool when they take on Grimsby tomorrow night in the Carabao Cup.
