Chelsea make fresh Achraf Hakimi move

Chelsea have reportedly made a fresh move for Inter Milan defender Achraf Hakimi.

The Blues are looking to add more quality into their ranks to compete for the Premier League title next season.

They have their sights on landing Hakimi, but their opening bid of €50m was recently rejected by the Nerazzurri.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Blues have now made a similar offer, with Emerson included as a makeweight.

Inter are looking for €80m, but the Blues are optimistic of landing the defender on a part-exchange deal this summer.

Aside from Emerson, Tammy Abraham and Hakim Ziyech are among the other players, who could be swapped for Hakimi.

Hakimi had a superb 2020/21 campaign for Inter, registering seven goals and 11 assists from 45 appearances in the right wing-back role.

Despite this, he could be sold with Inter needing to recover around €100m before the end of June to balance their books.
