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

As reported by RMC Sport, PSG are eager to sign the defender but have yet to reach an agreement with his club Inter Milan.

The report indicates that Inter are reluctant to sell Hakimi but a deal that would see him sign for Mauricio Pochettino’s team has moved closer of late.

Capable of playing as a right-back or a right wing-back, Hakimi won the Serie A title during his first season at Inter. He was previously at 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 many further departures from the club this summer.

PSG and manager Mauricio Pochettino are looking to capitalise on Inter’s financial situation

Despite winning the league, Inter are in financial ruin, and must raise £87million from player sales and also impose a wage reduction of 20 per cent among the first-team squad.

Inter received a loan of £250m from Oaktree Capital but will probably have to sell some of their key players, with striker Romelu Lukaku a candidate to depart. 

Hakimi, 22, has just over four years remaining on his contract at Inter. He is set to feature for Morocco before making a decision on his club future.
