Achraf Hakimi: Chelsea and Paris St-Germain interested in Inter Milan defender

Inter Milan wing-back Achraf Hakimi is at the centre of a transfer battle between Chelsea and Paris St-Germain. It is understood Chelsea have made a bid in the region of 60m euros with full-back Marcos Alonso potentially included as part of the deal. However, the Serie A champions would prefer a cash-only transfer. Inter are attempting to address financial issues created by the coronavirus pandemic that have affected their Chinese owners, Suning.
