Hakimi has been linked with a move to Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain. Both clubs have had offers of €60m rejected and the battle to get the Moroccan is underway.

The 22-year-old will be sold this summer with Inter willing to raise funds before June 30 to ease his financial burden amid the Covid-19. His agent also recently confirmed that he is likely to leave San Siro.

Chelsea are leading the race and contacts have been ongoing for several days with the Blues keen to get a deal over the line according to Calciomercato.

Inter are believed to be ready to accept an offer of €65 million in cash plus Marcos Alonso, a player the Italian team is interested in.

Inter signed Hakimi from Real Madrid for around €40m last summer, after he spent two successful seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund between 2018 and 2020, and he was part of Antonio Conte’s team that won Serie A.

Big events could take place in the next few days, but the report suggests Chelsea are at the forefront and on the verge of closing a deal for Hakimi.
