PSG are heavily linked also with the Moroccan with Inter under pressure to sell the defender due to their financial crisis and needing to raise funds. 

Inter value Hakimi in the region of £70 million and are hoping to finalise a transfer by June 30.

Chelsea want a new right-sided player this summer, however it won't be to replace Reece James, who has impressed Thomas Tuchel.

Inter have been linked with Chelsea duo Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen.

What Thomas Tuchel has said on summer acquisitions

“Two or three (signings) could be very, very good. It’s a constant thing to never deny change; that you always bring new energy, new guys who question the old beliefs, who challenge everybody in the training and in matches, so I think it’s a good thing.

"We don’t need another seven and another complete turnover because it’s also our job to keep on improving, because we have still a young squad and it’s not about stealing from them the chance to prove it again, that they are capable of growing and evolving. But we have some ideas, of course, to make the group stronger, and I think this can always be a positive thing to challenge all of us."
