The 25-year-old joined Bournemouth in 2017 in a £20m deal from Chelsea.
The Blues inserted a £40m buyback clause in his contract, which meant they could re-sign the defender for twice what they sold him for.
The clause effectively gives Chelsea first refusal on Ake and the club have a short window says believed to be 72 hours says in which they can activate the clause after Bournemouth notified the Blues of their accepted bid.
