At San Siro, the Morrocan full-back has enhanced his reputation as one of the best in the business, but his future lies away from the club.

Achraf Hakimi will be leaving Inter Milan this summer, the player’s agent has confirmed.

Financial scarcity in times of a pandemic is forcing Inter Milan into sacrificing some of their stars – and Hakimi will certainly be one of them.

One of their most prized possessions, the 22-year-old right-back could raise up to €80 million for the Serie A champions, who are supposedly in desperate need of cash before the end of the fiscal year.

Paris Saint-Germain are said to be strongly interested in signing him. However, as per recent reports, there exists a considerable gap between their transfer offer and Inter’s valuation of the player.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are also keen on having him, with adding a new right-back to his squad reportedly a priority for Blues boss Thomas Tuchel.

“The only one who is going to leave Inter for now is Hakimi, who I also represent,” agent Alejandro Camano confirmed, via AS.

Lautaro Martinez‘s future, meanwhile, is also up in the air. The 23-year-old forward was previously linked with a move to Barcelona as well as Real Madrid.

Camano added: “[With Lautaro] there is still no clear situation. [But Hakimi] he is going.”
