Arsenal line up a shot for Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi to replace disgraced Hector Bellerin.
The Spain international, linked with Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, is reportedly heading for the exit door.
According to Calciomercato, the Gunners are ready to shell out Inter’s asking price of € 50million (£ 43million) for Hakimi, but North Londoners would inevitably face competition from Manchester City for his signing.
Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the 22-year-old, who has established himself as an integral part of Antonio Conte’s squad.
The Moroccan international remains under contract with Nerazzurri until 2025.
Hakimi has scored six goals and recorded five assists in 27 Serie A appearances this season.
