Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has refused to rule out signing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth when the transfer window opens in January. Ake has been heavily linked with a move back to Chelsea, who sold him for £20m in June 2017.

However, Chelsea inserted a buy-back clause which is reportedly set at £40m. Lampard praised Ake during his press conference but says he rather focus on matches for now until the window opens in January.

"It is what it is. I think Nathan came through here and when he has gone to Bournemouth to be able to play regular football, I think he has done fantastically well. He has shown himself as a really good defender in the Premier League. In terms of the back four and with the defence I have I am very happy. Again, it won’t be anything I consider until I feel otherwise and at the minute we can do no business. We have to worry about Bournemouth tomorrow, Tottenham next Sunday, Southampton, Arsenal and Brighton. Then the window opens." Lampard said

Ake, who is currently injured will not be with his teammates when they face Chelsea in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
