Bayern Munich rival Arsenal for Inter Milan fullback Hakimi

Bayern Munich could thwart Arsenal's plans for Achraf Hakimi.

New Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann is drawing up a list of transfer targets for the summer.

And the Daily Express says Hakimi is high up on his wish-list.

The 22-year-old is currently enjoying life with Inter Milan, having just won the Serie A title with the Nerazzurri.

It is believed Inter would be reluctant to sell Hakimi.

The news comes as a blow to Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who has identified the Morocco international as a replacement for Hector Bellerin.

Whilst the Gunners are expected to spend this summer, it is hard to envisage a situation where they would outbid Bayern to sign Hakimi.

Bellerin is being linked with Barcelona and PSG.
