Arsenal are set to make Inter Milan a ‘firm offer’ for defender Achraf Hakimi, according to reports. The Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is keen to sign a new defender who can play on the right side of the field, as a replacement to Hector Bellerin’s future at the club is up in the air.
According to Spanish news outlet AS via The Sun, Arsenal are ready to make a move for the Morocco international. The Serie A leaders have put a £43million (€50m) price tag on the 22-year-old, who joined Real Madrid in a deal worth £34m last summer.
Hakimi has established himself as an integral part of Antonio Conte’s side, creating six goals and six assists in 36 appearances this season. However, due to financial uncertainty, Hakimi could be offloaded to bring money into the club.
