Achraf Hakimi is set to move to Paris Saint-Germain leaving Chelsea on the sidelines
Inter’s defender Ashraf Hakimi has become closer to joining PSG. The Parisians and the 22-year-old Moroccan have agreed on the details of a five-year contract.
PSG will soon improve the official offer to Inter – up to 70 million euros, including bonuses in the deal.
According to the source, PSG are one step away from the successful completion of the deal. Chelsea also approached the player. The London club offered €60m for the footballer and was also ready to include Marcos Alonso, Davide Zappacosta, Emerson or Andreas Christensen in the deal. The Italian club did not like this kind of offer, particularly they were not happy with the price. Thereafter, it became known about Nerazzurri’s decision to refuse.
Chelsea are considering Wolverhampton player Adam Traore as a possible alternative to Hakimi.
