Chelsea 'make Achraf Hakimi transfer offer including player-swap but Inter Milan £70m fee up front for full-back'

CHELSEA have reportedly offered a cash-plus-player exchange for Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakmi.

The Italian side signed Hakimi for £34m from Real Madrid last summer following two successful seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund.

Now they reportedly want around DOUBLE that fee to offload him during the current transfer window.

Hakimi scored seven goals in 45 appearances last season but a financial crisis has forced the Serie A champions into cutting their title-winning squad.

It has already been claimed that the Moroccan star has verbally agreed to join the Blues.

But both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have already failed with £56m bids.

Now Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has tweeted: “Inter are waiting to receive new bids for Hakimi.

“Talks ongoing with PSG, Chelsea are offering players but Inter want €80m.”

We reported yesterday how Ruben Loftus-Cheek was allegedly one player offered to Inter.

Marcos Alonso is another player Chelsea are willing to part with to strike a deal, while Sky Sports claim Emerson Palmieri, Andreas Christensen and Davide Zappacosta could also be used.


Gazzette dello Sport say Loftus-Cheek, 25, is the latest name to be thrown in the mix.

Injuries have plagued the midfielder and he scored once in 33 appearances on loan for Fulham last season.

Loftus-Cheek's 17-year stay at Chelsea looks set to come to an end having joined the academy in 2004.

Lazio boss Maurizo Sarri has also been linked with a move for his former star, who he regularly played during his one-year Stamford Bridge spell.
