Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake is refusing to read too much into talk of a possible £40 million ($53m) move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils remain in the market for centre-half additions after failing to bolster their ranks in that department over the summer.
Various other options for the Red Devils are now being mooted, including Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic – who Jose Mourinho caught in action during a recent outing for Serbia.
Former Chelsea defender Ake is another of those said to be on United’s radar, with the 23-year-old ticking a number of boxes.
He boasts plenty of Premier League experience, is a senior international with the Netherlands and would be a long-term option to slip into the fold at Old Trafford.
Ake is, however, paying little attention to the transfer talk surrounding him heading towards January, with a long-term contract penned at Bournemouth following a permanent move to the Cherries in 2017.
"I’ve seen it pass by but of course it’s rumours," the versatile Dutchman told Voetbal International.
"At the moment I play at Bournemouth and that is going well, so I focus on that.
"This does not say much about my status yet. They are rumours on the internet and as long as I do not hear anything myself, I will not go into that."
Ake joined Bournemouth for a club-record £20m ($26m) fee ahead of the 2017-18 season, having impressed during a loan spell in the previous campaign.
He was an ever-present for the Cherries in the Premier League last term and has figured in all eight of their top-flight fixtures this year – netting his first goal of the campaign in a 2-2 draw with Everton.
