Earlier today, we carried a report from Sky Italia, which explained Chelsea have a ‘very strong interest’ in Achraf Hakimi.
It was also explained the Blues are ready to include Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen as part of the deal to sign Inter Milan player.
Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the right-back, but their €60m offer is not enough to take him away from the San Siro.
Gazzetta dello Sport now state the two sides ‘want’ the 22-year-old, but neither of them have met the €75m valuation, or come close to this figure.
The newspaper add the London club have proposed Emerson and Christensen in exchange for the Morocco international, but Simone Inzaghi’s new club are not pleased with this deal.
Inter retain an interest in Emerson, but their chiefs, Giuseppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio have ‘replied’ to Chelsea that ‘only cash in needed’ to sign the former Real Madrid man.
The Nerazzurri want to conduct separate negotiations for any Chelsea player, and prefer to take Emerson on a loan deal.
Gazzetta state the ‘ball is back’ in Chelsea’s court as they will have to make an offer ‘without any counterparts’ to acquire Hakimi’s services.
With Chelsea and PSG interested in the player, Inter are hoping other big clubs [like Bayern Munich] could join the auction.
