Manchester have intensified their interest in Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Aké (25), and early discussions have taken regarding a possible deal.

The Dutchman was watched by City before the winter transfer window, but no advances were made at the time.

David Ornstein from The Athletic with the report. Previous reports had pegged Ake at 40-50 million pounds, which is a little steep in my estimation. If Pep, amid uncertain in global markets and murky financials most teams find themselves in, he could cut it 10-15 million and he would be a fine signing.

Versatile, solid in the air, and quick, he could make up many deficiencies for City.
