AFC Bournemouth are reportedly interested in taking three players from Premier League champions elect Chelsea during the summer.
In recent weeks, AFC Bournemouth have been heavily linked with a move for former Chelsea and England captain John Terry (previous article).
It has now been announced that the 36 year old will leave Chelsea at the end of the season as he is out of contract.
Whilst AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has not ruled out potential interest in the experienced defender.
Meanwhile back in February, after a failed attempt during the January transfer window, the Cherries were also reportedly set to make a summer move for goalkeeper Asmir Begovic (previous article).
The Bosnia-Herzegovina international spoke following the closing of the window of his frustration at not being able to move in search of regular first team football.
The latest, again according to The Mirror, is for a double swoop for both Begovic and defender Nathan Ake.
Ake had previously been on loan with AFC Bournemouth this season and had become a Dean Court favourite after scoring the winner in the comeback victory over Liverpool.
His form also led to an early recall by Chelsea, however Ake is yet to feature in the Premier League for the top flight leaders.
The report adds…
‘Eddie Howe has made the duo his top targets and is willing to pay £25million to bring them to the south coast.’

Honestly – these two and another defender who can play RB (preferably both RB and CB) and I’d consider it a decent transfer window.
I think we have enough elsewhere with the younger guys being a year older (Lewis Cook and Hyndman being able to play in the middle). – Join the conversation here.
It’s easy to join AFCB Vital
