Although, as we’ve stressed many a time already this season, Chelsea, under Frank Lampard, are a work on progress, one area of the side definitely looks as if it needs improving.

Sadly, although Chelsea look exceptional going forward, moving the ball quickly and with purpose, they continue to look vulnerable in defence.

Naturally, we’re all hoping that the return, from injury, of Antonio Rudiger will help to ease the problem.

However, with the transfer window ban now ended, is January the time to bring in a top-notch defender to assist us in our quest to finish in the top-four of the Premier League?

Yesterday, Sunday, The Telegraph were of the opinion that steps are being taken to do just that with, possibly, a familiar face set to return to Stamford Bridge.

The player in question is Bournemouth’s Dutch international defender, Nathan Ake.

Ake, since leaving Chelsea, has developed into a top-class centre-back and our referenced source is adamant that Chelsea are looking to trigger a buy-back clause in the 24-year-olds contract.

Naturally, questions will be asked as to why Chelsea ever let Ake leave the club, but would you welcome a return to Stamford Bridge for the defender?

Please feel free to air your views on the subject matter in the comment facility beneath this article.

  • It’s a pity that Chelsea allowed Ake to move away.who is even sure if the young man would be willing to return.Anytime any day,Ake is ours.I want to see him back.

  • NO i can’t buy ake we need strong defensive like koulibaly or vallane who is mature enough to support tomori and zouma for their development.

  • Ake is not the best option for the blues if we are to buy a defense this winter then let go for an experience players like koulibaly,varane, zagadue, hysaj, for the support of fikayo tomori, Andreas christiansen till rudiga is back because we can’t keep hoping for is return when we got a top four to battle for. But for now I think tomori and christiansen should be merge for the central back. Zouma is a good and serious player but got many error even after long time in England

  • Nathan Ake will be highly welcome in Chelsea…. He’s our academy player… With lot lots of experience so we need him back …. We need his quality performance now more than before

  • For my opinion Chelsea need central defender zouma cost as a lot Tomori is playing well but that combination of Zouma and christeten is weak.

  • It’s a good move for ake to come back to the club, I welcome the idea but my question is why is that any player that leaves Chelsea always do well ?

  • i would have loved to see koulibaly in Chelsea, imagine koulibaly and rudiger pairing five and six our defense we look more stronger.
