Chelsea transfer news LIVE: Leandro Paredes agrees personal terms, £26m fee offered

Wanted: Nathan Ake

Chelsea are thinking about bringing Nathan Ake back to Stamford Bridge.

That’s according to The Sun, who claim Chelsea want a new central defender to replace captain Gary Cahill.

The Cherries signed Ake for a club record fee of £20million in June 2017, but a £40million buy-back clause was inserted in his contract.

Now, Chelsea are thinking about activating that clause with Ake proving himself at domestic and international level.

£50m Eden Hazard bid

Real Madrid are set to bid £50m each for BOTH Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen to get the ball rolling on their summer spending.

Real Madrid reportedly want both players this summer and will start their moves with a low ball offer, according to the Sun.

It is claimed Madrid expect to see the bids rejected and will then begin negotiations for the players.

Hazard will have just 12 months on his deal in the summer and is likely to leave then unless a new contract is agreed.
