Arsenal could receive a boost in their pursuit for Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi. Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte left the club after their significant financial problems, which means valuable players will need to be sold.

Conte has reportedly departed due to the fact the newly-crowned Italian champions want to sell at least £69million worth of talent to balance their books. Hakimi is among the players who could become available, despite the Moroccan having only joined from Real Madrid a year ago for £36m.

The 22-year-old Hakimi has established himself as one of the finest attack-minded right-backs in Europe and from a more advanced right-midfield role in Inter’s 3-5-2 system under Conte, contributed seven goals and 11 assists in 45 outings.

Bayern Munich-linked Hakimi is valued at £43million according to Goal and so represents a player who could recoup a big fee for the Inter owners Suning.
