Some news has arrived that corroborates some of our exclusive discoveries, with Goal claiming that Chelsea are attempting to acquire Achraf Hakimi by giving Marcos Alonso and Davide Zappacosta.
According to Goal, the Blues are giving the full-back pair as makeweights to Inter Milan in an attempt to reduce the €80 million asking price for Hakimi, while also offloading some peripheral players.
This follows our exclusive revelation earlier today that the 22-year-old feels let down by PSG, his preferred destination because to family ties in Paris, with the Blues now frontrunners due to their shown commitment to completing a deal.
Additionally, as previously said, Chelsea’s bid, which includes players, and the West London club’s willingness to spend the cash, suggests that an agreement over a move is near and just a matter of time.
Hakimi has emerged as a target for Thomas Tuchel’s side, who do not seem to want to lose out on a world-class target who is available this summer as Inter attempt to balance their books.
Chelsea seem to be the frontrunners to sign the rampaging right-back unless PSG change their minds and seize the opportunity to acquire someone with family connections to Paris.
