Chelsea have made an improved bid for Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi, according to the latest transfer reports.
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 we 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
The club are already believed to have made an initial offer worth €60million (£51.5m) plus a choice of Emerson Palmieri or Andreas Christensen, and are even prepared to offer a few more players in a bid to get a deal done
But now the club are looking to win the race to sign Hakimi as they look to strengthen their defensive options for a Premier League title tilt next season, as Corriere dello Sport claim that we have made an improved offer to get a deal done.
It is not known how much the club have submitted in order to sign Hakimi, but as Inter know there is alot of interest in the players signature, they are prepared to hold out for the biggest amount of money that they can.
