Why Chelsea Have Cooled Interest in Bournemouth Pair Nathan Ake & Callum Wilson

Chelsea have reportedly decided not to sign Bournemouth stars, Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson in this January's transfer window, according to Sky Sports.

The Blues sold Ake to Bournemouth for £20m in 2017 following a successful loan on the south coast. The Dutchman is very calm and composed on the ball, his versatility enables him to cover in midfield in the same vein as Mason Holgate, and, as a left-footed centre-back, he would be more suited to playing on the left side of defence, which would prove useful for the club as Everton are now without a natural left-footed player in that position.

Chelsea have a £40m option on Ake, but Sky Sports have reported that it will not be used this month.

Chelsea have conceded 29 goals in the league this season, more than any other side in the top seven, so we can understand why Lampard is being cautious before committing to a defensive deal. But 90min told you earlier this week that the club will keep Michy Batshuayi as a back-up for the remainder of the season and wait until summer when preferred targets may become available.

At Chelsea, there is a very clear path to follow when it comes to signings.

Scouts are believed to have been monitoring the Dutchman's progress in recent months as Lampard looks for defensive reinforcements this month, with Ake's Bournemouth teammate Wilson also having been on the club's radar for over a year.
