Swept at home this Saturday by Liverpool (0-3), Arsenal wishes at all costs to strengthen its defensive sector. An Inter Milan player is targeted.
While remaining on four games unbeaten in the league, Arsenal fell heavily this Saturday when they received Liverpool (0-3, Premier League matchday 30). A disastrous overall performance, and a London defense again overtaken by events. What further push the management of the club to look into the recruitment of a high-level defender.
And according to AS, the Gunners would aim to bring Achraf Hakimi. Arrived at Inter Milan in the summer of 2020 from Real Madrid, the Moroccan international is enjoying the heyday of the nerazzurro club who could however be pushed to sell him. The fault of finances undermined by the economic crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Purchased 40 M € (plus bonuses), Achraf Hakimi could take the place of a Hector Bellerin pending departure at Arsenal. However, it remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will not want to get him back, since the Merengue club has priority over the redemption of his former player. An option a priori to be ruled out since Hakimi does not want to return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
