Chelsea have submitted an offer in the region of €60 million (£51.5m) to sign Inter defender Achraf Hakimi, according to reports in Italy.
Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he needs to keep improving the side in the transfer window as he will need to add a bit more quality to the squad.
That has led to reports in the media that the club are very interested in trying to secure a transfer deal for Hakimi, who is now regarded as one of the very best defenders in Seria A.
Hakimi helped Inter win the Seria A title this season, but the Italians are in debt and they must sell a number of players in the transfer window in order to balance the books, and Hakimi is a man that they will allow to leave
Now, According to Sky Sport Italia, both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have tabled offers of €60m (£51.5m) but the Serie A champions are holding out for a fee closer to €80m (£68.7m) for the Morocco international.
The report also claims that we have the edge over PSG as they can include two players – Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen – as part of their offer for Hakimi.
Considering that we already have one of the very best right-backs in the premier League, so it is a massive shock to see that Tuchel is looking to add another to the squad in the coming window.
However, we need to add some more quality players to the squad and no-one will be upset if the club do manage to sign Hakimi right?
