Manchester City and Bournemouth have agreed a €43 deal for Nathan Ake.

This was revealed by respected Italian sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano, via his Twitter feed on Thursday morning.

Romano tweeted: “Man City have found an agreement to sign Nathan Aké from Bournemouth.

“€43M will be the fee – paperworks time to complete the deal.

“Pep wants him after problems for Koulibaly (Man City are still angry with Napoli because of Jorginho/Chelsea deal two years ago).”
