Begovic and Ake Linked with Bournemouth Moves
Although Antonio Conte has heavily hinted that he is looking to strengthen the squad this summer, there is also the probability that some squad members could leave.
Today, the respected journalists of The Guardian, are intimating that two of the current Chelsea squad could be heading to the south-coast.
The two in question are both wanted by AFC Bournemouth as the Cherries seek to further enhance their reputation as a Premier League side.
It seems that AFC Bournemouth are willing to pay Chelsea a combined fee of £30 million for Asmir Begovic and Nathan Ake.
Begovic was linked with a move to the Vitality Stadium back in the January transfer window, but a move didn`t materialise as Chelsea were unable to bring in a top-notch replacement understudy keeper.
Ake, on the other hand, spent the first half of the season on loan at AFC Bournemouth before being, surprisingly recalled to Stamford Bridge a move made even more surprising as Ake barely featured for Chelsea once he had returned.
Begovic, we feel, is destined to make that move to the south-coast but as for Ake, we`re not so sure considering the praise that was lavished upon the young Dutchman by Antonio Conte recently.
