Chelsea have made a handful of transfer mistakes over the years. Between the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Mohamed Salah and Bertrand Traore, more than a few good players have slipped through the net of the Chelsea first team.
Another man that has impressed since leaving Stamford Bridge is Nathan Ake.
This is, seemingly, something that Chelsea fans agree with, at least according to a recent poll. We asked fans whether they’d like their club to re-sign Ake, and a whopping 88% of those polled responded positively to the idea.
Ake looked good when he was at Chelsea, but at that time, competition for places was just too much. That’s no longer the case now, and the Dutch defender would offer Chelsea a fantastic option if they were to bring him back.
It would be interesting to see how a move may impact Andreas Christensen, but at present it doesn’t seem as though Maurizio Sarri particularly fancies the Dane. Perhaps, also, there could be scope for Ake to come in at left-back.
The decision, though, lies with Maurizio Sarri and the Chelsea brass.
