Arsenal battling Chelsea for 22-year-old Serie A star

Achraf Hakimi has become a target of Arsenal and he could head to London in the summer with Chelsea also looking to sign him, according to The Telegraph.

The Moroccan only moved to the San Siro in the summer from Real Madrid after a very successful loan stint at Borussia Dortmund.

He has remained a key player at Inter as they look to end Juventus’ dominance of the Italian league.

However, the club’s owner, Suning Holdings Group, is struggling financially and has just shut down their Chinese team because of a lack of funds.

They have tried to allay any fears that they will have to sell some of their top players, but there is a feeling that it is an inevitability because of their financial state.

Arsenal will look for a new right-back in the summer if Hector Bellerin finally leaves them.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from the Emirates for a long time.

The Gunners have kept hold of him so far, but he hasn’t been offered a new deal despite his current contract expiring in 2023.

Hakimi has been identified as the player that will replace him if he leaves in the summer.

But Arsenal will have to beat Chelsea before they can win the race for his signature.

    Battling???😁😁😁
    The only battle Arsenal has right now is how to qualify for Europe…. Cos if we don’t, I doubt if we can be able to afford a £10 million player.

    To tell the truth Hector has not been linked to any club…..except Arsenal. Since his injury he has lost some of his pace but is still a decent mid table RB.
    He is our longest serving player so why would we part with him? He is certainly not on any big clubs radar any more as his salary is far too high and Arsenals asking price is way out of reach of even the richest clubs suffering huge debt as a result of Covid. Hector will do as Ozil Sanchez Ramsey Socritis Mustafi Kolasinac and Lacazette will also do. Run down his contract leave on a free and collect a hefty retirement salary. Arsenal already has Cedic in a 3 year deal and Chambers is cheap and also a quota player.
    So Hakimi might as well be Surimi for all the chances he has of being a Gooner any time soon.
    But it’s fun to pretend like fantasty football or FIFA 21 where we can have any one one our team 😊😊😊

    A very fine RB who is unfortunately far too pricey for Arsenal.
