Chelsea have decided against activating their buyback clause for Nathan Ake, while also ending their interest in his Bournemouth teammate Callum Wilson, it is claimed.

Star striker Callum Wilson has failed to score since September, before which he had been another name under consideration at Chelsea, but that interest has since cooled.

The Dutch defender came through the youth ranks at Chelsea before reaching the fringes of the first team, making a total of 17 appearances for them at senior level.

As for Bournemouth, Sky Sports add that Eddie Howe has been given a vote of confidence by the club’s owners, despite their run of five games without a win in the Premier League.

When he was sold to Bournemouth for £20m in 2017, Chelsea retained the right to have the first option to re-sign him for double that amount – but Sky Sports News back up claims they have passed up on the opportunity and will look elsewhere.

With their transfer ban lifted, Chelsea are beginning to think about potential targets again, and many expected one of their first moves to be completing the return of Ake.

Batshuayi has also come under consideration at Villa Park, but has fewer links away than Giroud at present – even with Belgium national team manager Roberto Martinez admitting that the 26-year-old needs to play more regularly if he wants to feature at the European Championships this summer.
