Chelsea are reportedly in talks over the possible signing of Manchester City defender Nathan Ake.

Discussions over the transfer of Ake come just days after it emerged the Blues are interested in Raheem Sterling.

The Blues are expected to bring in new players in the coming weeks after Todd Boehly took charge as the club’s new owner.

According to Metro UK, Chelsea have identified a number of areas which need strengthening, including defense and attack.

The West London club are now reportedly considering a double raid on Man City to sign duo Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake this summer.

It was previously reported that Thomas Tuchel-tutored are keen to go all out and sign Sterling to replace Romelu Lukaku who departed the club for Inter Milan.

Interest on defender Ake comes from the need for Chelsea to strengthen their backline after the departures of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger who moved to the La Liga.

Boehly and Tuchel have reportedly discussed the possibility of signing the duo, though it could prove difficult to persuade the Citizens one of their rivals.
