Inter Milan close to signing Moroccan International Achraf Hakimi from Real Madrid for €40million

Inter are close to signing Achraf Hakimi from Real Madrid for about €40m (£35.8m) plus add-ons ahead of Bundesliga duo Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

The Moroccan full-back has been on loan at Borussia Dortmund for the past two seasons and is looking to leave Real in search for a regular starting place.

Hakimi, who has agreed terms on a five-year contract with Inter, has been a huge success at Dortmund.

He can play at right- and left-back as well as on either flank as a winger but Real have made it clear that he would start next season as back-up to Dani Carvajal, prompting the 21-year-old to look at other options.

The Madrid-born Hakimi joined Real in 2006, progressing through the youth ranks before making his La Liga debut in October 2017.

He joined Dortmund on loan in July 2018 and has scored seven goals in 53 league appearances for the Bundesliga side.

The Inter manager, Antonio Conte, is a big admirer of Hakimi and Inter are confident of securing the deal.

Inter, third in Serie A with 11 games remaining, are also hopeful of signing Brescia’s highly rated midfielder Sandro Tonali, who is likely to cost about €35m. Tonali is keen to join and the clubs are attempting to strike a deal for a player dubbed “the new Andrea Pirlo”.
