A fresh update on Chelsea’s reported pursuit of Achraf Hakimi has emerged online.

Hakimi impresses

Achraf Hakimi of course 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 a stellar 2019/20 campaign, which saw him score nine and assist 10, however, Real Madrid were not willing to give Hakimi a chance to impress in their side once he returned from 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 this past season.

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

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

Inter want Alonso included in Hakimi deal

In turn, such impressive form has inevitably resulted in Hakimi being linked with yet another move across Europe.

The front-runners for the youngster are said to be PSG and Chelsea, the latter of whom are believed to have called Hakimi’s agent earlier this month.

And, as mentioned above, a fresh update on Chelsea’s pursuit of the wide-man has emerged online over the last 24 hours.

Journalist Ekrem Konur reports that the European champions have agreed a verbal deal with Hakimi, whilst talks with Inter Milan are continuing.

It is added that Inter have asked Chelsea for €50m plus Marcos Alonso.

The reliable Gianluca Di Marzio has also covered the Chelsea-Hakimi story, and mentioned Inter’s potential interest in Marcos Alonso:
