According to a recent report from leading football journalist Fabrizio Romano, Mauricio Pochettino’s Paris-Saint Germain are leading Champions League winners Chelsea in the race to sign Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi.
The Blues, led by German manager Thomas Tuchel, are seemingly keen to add a top-quality full-back to their ranks.
However, should they prove to be successful in their pursuit of Inter Milan’s Hakimi, according to Romano, they’ll have to be prepared to part with a huge sum.
It has been noted that Paris-Saint Germain is working hard trying to complete the signing of the talented Moroccan defender, however, with Inter Milan demanding a whopping £69m, the French giants will need to up their original bid.
Paris Saint-Germain are still working to sign Achraf Hakimi from Inter. Price tag €80m, so PSG have to raise the bid. FC Bayern have not opened talks. ??

Interestingly, Romano also claims that despite rivalling Paris-Saint Germain for Hakimi, they’re also interested in Wolves attacker Adama Traore.
Traore has featured in 131 matches, in all competitions for Wolves and has directly contributed to 28 goals.
