On May 29th, we relayed claims made by Sky Italia that Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in Achraf Hakimi and the Blues are ‘closely following’ the right-back.
It was also explained Inter Milan need a ‘dizzying offer’ to sanction the player’s sale this summer.
Since this report emerged, PSG have been named as a frontrunner to acquire the 22-year-old’s services.
FcInterNews now state there is an ‘impasse’ in negotiations between the Ligue 1 side and the Nerazzurri to sign the former Real Madrid man.
PSG’x proposal for the Morocco international is ‘still stuck at €60m’, while the San Siro club don’t want to let him leave for less than €70-75m.
This ‘impasse’ can give an opportunity to the Champions League winners and the Bavarian club as these two ‘watch from the side’ to see how the defender’s situation will evolve.
It’s claimed there was a ‘phone call from Chelsea’, but they have ‘not yet taken official steps’ to sign Hakimi. Despite this, the west London club’s approach ‘must be recorded’.
Thomas Tuchel has Reece James as the first choice right-back at Stamford Bridge and considering Chelsea must strengthen other positions, it’s unclear if the Premier League side would be ready to invest around €70m on Hakimi.
