    On the flip side Bournemouth could recoup say 40-50m on Ake and reinvest in goal scorers to keep them in the league. Wilson is on a Barron spell of 13 games no goals, Solanke has been a flop not scored all last year, and Fraser not hit the heights of last season. After all goals win you games. Would be a gamble but I could see them selling at the right price.

    Well the other scenario I’ve seen is that Chelsea exercise the clause then sell him onto City for a big profit.

    I think in this case Chelsea hold all the cards, and if City really want him then a bidding war will kick in and we’ll get squeezed out. Possible blessing in disguise.

    Him and saliba would transform us next season and throw in partey or someone similar like dacoure and we would be in the right direction

    I know what you mean, but this rarely happens in January. And anyway, doubt Bournemouth will be investing massive, fee or wages, into any player with relegation looking probable.

    Think they’ll look to hold as they are and try to grind out a good home run to save them.

    These things get mentioned but I have never seen in happen in the PL.

    He's an outstanding defender, he'd be great for us. But I'd say it's most likely he'll end up back at Chelsea.

    From what I’ve read the buyback clause expires before the summer window so it’s now or never for Chelsea. As for Bournemouth I suppose they need to way up the pros and cons of selling him now or risk being relegated and getting a lower fee. They’re already going to lose Fraser for nothing.

    Bournemouth injury list makes us look healthy mate, they will be after an am and a forward imo

    Probably on loan or players they could keep in the championship without a massive wage bill.

    Young and English, ideal.

    He’s under 5’11 too ffs. The positive is that he’s versatile and could put in a shift in a few positions.

    Not sure. 25 soon so not a young puppy.

    Either way can’t really see us getting him for 45M when City are interested.

    What’s with Pep the bald bum bastard spending 200M on defenders every window.

    Annoying wanker.

    As said he’s under 6 ft but is a very good defender and can play lb and dm and plays both very well. Bournemouth still have a good chance to stay up so they will be reluctant to sell. Maybe dunk ?

    Dunk is pushing 30, not really a good investment as he won’t be cheap.

    Our model is probably centred around splashing on young talent or highlighting someone who is ready to step up.

    I'm sure Bournemouth would consider bids taking everything into consideration, but seriously I could imagine roughly a 200% premium price, anything over 30m is over the odds imo and could look elsewhere for better value for money.

    I get the whole prem experience is ideal scenario, but there are decent defenders in Spain and Italy you could pick up for half the price, I would personally recommend Armando Izzo from Torino for around 30m, ideal for a mid season transfer imo and could add real quality, then maybe in the summer re-evaluate the options.

    Isn’t dunk 28 and cb seem to carry on longer but I get your point however we will have a young cb prospect in saliba so a good cb with experience might be what we need

    Don’t know why this club isn’t identifying talent anymore. Demirel before he joined Juventus, Soyuncu before he went to Leicester etc.

    You can sign these guys for 20M. For us signing established performers is pushing the whole of our transfer budget.

    Ake gives you guarantees. He’s familiar with the league, already performing at a high level and doesn’t need time to adjust. Any signing from another league will have an adjustment period.
