Chelsea look to have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi after his agent confirmed he would be leaving Inter Milan.

Hakimi impressing at right-wing-back

Hakimi spent two seasons on loan in Germany with Borussia Dortmund where he impressed in a back-five, forming a solid partnership with Jadon Sancho.

Despite an impressive 2019/20 with BVB which saw him score nine and assist 10, Real Madrid seemingly did not want to give Hakimi a chance to impress in their side once he returned from his loan.

Instead, Los Blancos shipped the Moroccan off to Inter Milan for a fee reported to be around £40m.

Inter, like Dortmund in 2019/20, largely operated with a back-five system throughout this past campaign.

This once again allowed Hakimi to excel in his favoured right-wing-back role.

All told, the 22-year-old would score seven and assist 10 in 37 league outings as Inter secured their first Serie A title in 10 years.

‘The only one who is going to leave Inter at the moment is Hakimi’

Now, on the back of yet another stellar seaosn operating as a right-wing-back, Hakimi is being linked with some top clubs.

Inter Milan are, of course, in a fair bit of financial trouble at present. And it appears two clubs are looking to take advantage of that to try and lure one of their top stars from the Serie A champions.

Those clubs are said to PSG and Chelsea, the latter of which are believed to have called Hakimi’s agent earlier this month.

Now, said agent has come out to state that Hakimi will be leaving Inter:

“The only one who is going to leave Inter at the moment is Hakimi, who I represent. We have to work on the Lautaro file.”

Fabrizio Romano, who reported the quotes from Hakimi’s agent, also mentions interest from both PSG and Chelsea, whilst adding that the Blues are only in contact with the defender’s agent right now:
