Chelsea, Arsenal &Manchester City racing for Achraf Hakimi

Tue 02 February 2021 | 18:09

Manchester City have entered the competition to acquire Achraf Hakimi’s services this summer.

Achraf Hakimi

is showing off an impressive run of form at

Inter Milan

following his move from

Real Madrid

at the beginning of the season.

The Morocco international has met the target six times in 20 matches for his side. Notwithstanding his significant display and the fact that he joined the club in 2020, the 22-year-old may be transferred once again in the summer. Given the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Inter may have to sell Hakimi as they have failed to pay the first £9m instalment of his £35m transfer fee to Madrid.

According to the reports,

Manchester City

are also keen on signing with the full-back.

Joao Cancelo has been a prolific player for Pep Guardiola’s side so far, but City are interested in adding Hakimi to their squad to replace Kyle Walker in a long-term deal.

Among the other clubs eyeing the 22-year-old are

Arsenal

and

Chelsea

. The Blues are looking at Hakimi as an upgrade for their first-choice left-back Hector Bellerin. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel utilized a 3-4-2-1 formation in his first two matches. He moved Callum Hudson-Odoi to the right wing-back position, but adding Hakimi would provide him the chance to move the 20-year-old further forward.
