Paris Saint-Germain has an agreement in principle with Achraf Hakimi ahead of a possible move this summer.

The report indicates that Inter is reluctant to sell Hakimi, but a deal where he would sign for Mauricio Pochettino’s team has come closer recently.

Hakimi could play as a right-back or right-back and won the Serie A title during his first season with Inter. He was previously with Real Madrid and had a loan spell with Borussia Dortmund before joining Inter for £ 36m last year.
Inter head coach Antonio Conte resigned three days after the title success, while there could be a lot of departure from the club this summer.

PSG and manager Mauricio Pochettino want to take advantage of Inter’s financial situation
Despite winning the league, Inter is in financial ruin, having to raise £ 87 million from player sales and also impose a 20 percent wage cut on the first team.
Inter received a £ 250 million loan from Oaktree Capital but will likely have to sell some of their key players, with striker Romelu Lukaku a candidate to leave.
Hakimi, 22, has just over four years left on his contract with Inter. He will perform for Morocco before making a decision about the future of his club.
