Chelsea are set to go through with a double raid on Manchester City.
The London club are now looking to sign both Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake from the Premier League champions.
The Blues’ interest in Sterling has been reported in the British media in recent weeks.
However, The Daily Telegraph now states that Thomas Tuchel’s side want to sign former youth star Ake as well.
Chelsea were hoping to sign Matthjis De Ligt or Jules Kounde, but may have been priced out of those moves.
Now they are turning their attention to Ake, who Tuchel sees as the ideal player to field at left center back in his back three formation.
