LONDON: Manchester City are set to sign Dutch defender Nathan Ake of Bournemouth after agreeing to a deal worth 41 million pounds, according to British media reports.

City are reportedly negotiating a 40 million pound deal with Bournemouth, with the deal potentially increasing by another 1 million pounds depending on the clause.

The possibility of Ake arriving at the Etihad Stadium will come after City had a bad season on the defensive side following Vincent Kompany’s move to Anderlecht last year.

Aymeric Laporte’s long injury and disappointing performances from John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, saw City boss Pep Guardiola forced Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho into the central defense.
