Chelsea are considering recalling on-loan defender Nathan Ake who joined Bournemouth in the summer, due to a lack of playing time, according to reports from The Star.
The former Watford loanee was one of many players who left the Blues on a temporary basis over the summer window, but is not enjoying a successful season on the South Coast.
The Netherlands U21 international is yet to start a Premier League game for The Cherries with long-term full-back Charlie Daniels holding the spot down.
The 21-year-old is one of 26 players currently on the books at Stamford Bridge who are out on loan, therefore he will want to be playing regularly in order to stay in the thoughts of manager Antonio Conte.
Ake, who can also play in midfield, could find himself back in West London come January as the club have the option to end his loan deal in the winter window, but will more than likely be shipped out elsewhere than be offered a chance in the first team.
