Inter Milan are reportedly asking for €80million for Chelsea transfer target Achraf Hakimi, despite the Blues offering cash and players to the Italian giants.
The Morocco international is a top target for Chelsea and could be open to a move to Stamford Bridge, CaughtOffside understands, and there’s been another update on his situation from Fabrizio Romano.

Chelsea fans will hope their club can do whatever it takes to land Hakimi, who looks a superb talent after impressing in Serie A and in a previous spell on loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid.
Of course, the west London giants already have Reece James at right-back, but Hakimi might be seen as a more attacking option, which would allow James to move into the back three, a role he’s also played well in before.
Chelsea won the Champions League last season but were never really in the Premier League title race, so Thomas Tuchel will no doubt hope for signings like Hakimi to help the club move forward next season.
