Ake has established himself as a regular starter for the Cherries since his move from Chelsea, with his performances during the opening stages of this season in particular drawing the attention of some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
The 31-year-old has been ruled out until December, prompting Pochettino to begin thinking about a long-term replacement given that Toby Alderweireld‘s future is also up in the air.
Ake is thought to fit the mould for Pochettino, although any deal for the Dutch international is likely to cost around £40m – double what Bournemouth paid for him last year.
