Manchester City are “ready to sell” centre-back Nathan Ake, according to 90min.com. The website claims that despite manager Pep Guardiola being a “fan”, the player has been informed that he is “free to leave” the Etihad this summer.
Six Premier Leagues clubs are said to be interested in recruiting the Dutchman, who has been capped 27 times by his country. Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Bournemouth are all keen on securing his services:
Nathan Ake could be on his way out of Manchester City with a fair few Premier League clubs interested in his signature. 👀
Where could he be off to? 🤔

Ake is not in a similar situation to either Raheem Sterling or Gabriel Jesus, who both have just one year remaining on their contract. The defender has three years left on his current deal and it is believed that City won’t sell him unless they receive a satisfactory fee.
The Premier League champions signed the 27-year-old for £41m only two years ago, and it’s likely that they will want to recoup as much as possible for the centre-half.
