£44 million rated Bellerin replacement sends clear transfer message to Arsenal board about possible transfer deal
In-demand Arsenal target Achraf Hakimi has addresses the transfer rumours circulating the media that he is on the transfer radar of a number of clubs.
The Morocco international impressed massively during the two seasons he spent at Borussia Dortmund while on loan from Real Madrid between 2018 and 2020.
Impressive standards have been maintained at Inter since his move from the Bundesliga, with six goals and five assists recorded, allowing his valuation to rise further over the past 12-18 months.
Premier League suitors are said to be mulling over big-money raids but freeing Hakimi from a contract that is due to run until 2025 will not be easy, or cheap, and Arsenal know that they will have a battle on their hands to try and get a transfer deal done.
However, Discussing his past, present and future, Hakimi told La Repubblica: “The team that attracted me the most was Inter and I saw it as a growth project.
“I am honoured to be one of the testimonials for the new club logo. I like it, as it looks to the future, a future we can build together.
“I hope to stay at this club for a long time, I’m very happy.”
Look, Hakimi is a very good defender and it is very easy to see just why Arsenal are very much interested in a transfer deal. So the fact that he has no desire to leave the Italians will come as a massive blow to the club.
They do have other options that they could sign, But Arsenal have named him their top target and this will be a huge transfer blow to the club, as we just said.
