Tottenham Hotspur continue to keep tabs on Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake, according to reports in the Netherlands.

Ake has been linked with Spurs by the British press in recent months as the Londoners continue to identify potential long-term replacements for Toby Alderweireld.

Alderweireld is likely to leave this summer if his £25 million release clause is activated, meaning Tottenham will almost certainly go into the market for a new centre-back.

And Dutch outlet De Telegraaf believes Spurs are keeping a close eye on Ake, who has impressed for Bournemouth since joining the south coast club permanently from Chelsea in the summer of 2017.

Ake has made 31 Premier League appearances this season, scoring three goals for the Cherries.

De Telegraaf claims Chelsea are also keen on Ake and are considering bringing the 24-year-old back to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The English clubs apparently face competition from Napoli, who want to sign Ake as a replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly if the defender joins Manchester United this summer.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United manage to spark a transfer merry-go-round in the coming months.
