Ake made his way back to Stamford Bridge this week after being recalled early from a year’s loan spell at Bournemouth due to his excellent form for the Cherries.
Whilst certain Chelsea defenders might be a little bit on edge as to whether or not the Dutch Under-21 international is about to take their place, midfielder Chalobah was absolutely over the moon about the news.
As they were reunited at the training ground, Ake was thrown into a bear hug and, well, sort of serenaded by his team-mate:
Aw, how cute.
Despite their glee, it remains to be seen whether or not either player will managed to nail down a regular first-team place under Antonio Conte, but the Italian definitely seems more keen on giving youth players a chance.
Do you think both have a long-term future at the Bridge?
