​Chelsea reach verbal agreement with Inter Milan star Hakimi

Chelsea could be close to sealing the transfer of Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.

The right wing-back, who can also play as a right winger or left wing back, is the man Thomas Tuchel wants at the Stamford Bridge club this summer.

According to Ekrem Konur, a respected journalist, Hakimi has given the okay to Chelsea for the transfer to take place.

The 22-year-old, who played 45 times for Inter as they won Serie A this past season, may be sold by the Italian club as they look to balance the books.

Italian reports had previously suggested that Inter would only sell Hakimi for a very significant fee, but Chelsea may be willing to go big for such a talented wing back.
