Chelsea transfer blow as Achraf Hakimi’s agent confirms Inter star is set for PSG move

CHELSEA have been dealt a transfer blow with Achraf Hakimi's agent confirming his client is set for Paris Saint-Germain.

The right-back, 22, has been linked with a move away from the San Siro in recent months.

But the Moroccan looks on course to link up with Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes rather than Thomas Tuchel in West London.

His agent did not reveal a contract is signed just yet with the French giants – but hinted it is very close.

Alejandro Camano told reporters: "We talked about several things, we can’t say yet that Hakimi is a new PSG player.

"We talked about everything.

“If Hakimi is sad to leave Inter? Those who leave Inter are always sad.”

Hakimi spent 14 years with hometown club Real Madrid before joining Inter last summer on a five-year deal for around £36million.

But just one successful season later – he racked up seven goals and ten assists in 37 Serie A appearances as the Nerazzurri won the league – the defender will move on.

European champions Chelsea were interested and reportedly offered £52m plus Marcos Alonso.


But Poch has swooped with a £59.8m bid and that is expected to be enough to land the attack-minded wing-back.

Camano also represents Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, who is another player linked with a move away.

But he insisted the Argentina international striker is settled in Milan.

The agent added: "Martinez stays here, now he’s in Argentina for the Copa America.

"Lautaro is an Inter player, he has a two-year contract and is happy here."
