Manchester City have had a £41 million bid for Nathan Ake accepted by Bournemouth as they look to get their summer business wrapped up quickly.
Some Tottenham fans were even disappointed that they haven't put the money on the table for Ake given that they need fresh faces in defence for next season and they did just let go of the left-footed Belgian, Jan Vertonghen.
Initially a Chelsea player, Ake had loan spells at Reading, Watford and Bournemouth before finally signing permanently for the Cherries. City announced the signing of the player in a statement on their website on Wednesday, adding that the player signed a five-year deal but the move is subject to worldwide clearance.
City are in the market for a new winger following the departure of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich. Ake missed the Cherries' final three Premier League fixtures after suffering a groin injury in 4-1 win over Leicester on July 12.
