The former Chelsea defender has been getting plenty of plaudits at the heart of the Bournemouth FC defence, and this is a move which looks easy on the eye. He was linked with a summer transfer to the Etihad, and with the current defensive crisis at City, Pep Guardiola is likely to make a move for the homegrown talent.

Ake was initially sent on loan to Bournemouth, however, he sealed a permanent move to the South Coast club in 2017 after a standout season. He's represented Bournemouth in 103 games, scored 10 goals, and provided 5 assists so far.

He is currently valued at £40 million, but with reports over the summer that the Cherries demanded an £80 million transfer fee when Leicester City came calling, the Citizens may be required to fork out a very large sum.
