BOURNEMOUTH are set to launch a £32million raid on Chelsea for Nathan Ake and Asmir Begovic this summer, according to reports.
Nathan Ake believes that he has matured both on and off the pitch during an eventful season for the Chelsea defender.. The Bosnian goalkeeper was close to moving to Bournemouth in January, when a deal was agreed in principle, contingent on Antonio Conte's side securing an experienced replacement.

Begovic, who has attracted tentative interest from a number of other top-flight clubs, would cost Bournemouth around £12m and, barring rival bids, the transfer is expected to go through. Yet the move for Aké is more complicated.
Ake, who spent the first half of the season on-loan with the Cherries, is thought to be highly rated by his parent club, who will only consider offers of around £18million for the 22-year-old.

They are expected to launch a slew of devices, most of which will be refined versions of their previous flagship smartphones. The Moto C is the definition of a low-end budget smartphone and comes in several configurations with 3G and 4G models.
Begovic made just his second league appearance of the season in Monday evening's 4-3 win over Watford though he has been regularly used in the cup competitions. Having won three of their past four games, they would guarantee a top-half finish with a win at Leicester City on Sunday's final afternoon.
The Premier League champions, who are now negotiating a new deal for number one Thibaut Courtois, value Begovic at £12million and will be happy to listen to offers in that region.
