Chelsea can beat PSG to Hakimi

Chelsea could beat PSG to Achraf Hakimi by offering €60m plus either Emerson Palmieri or Andreas Christensen.

Multiple reports in Italy and France noted that Paris Saint-Germain saw their €60m proposal rejected, as the Nerazzurri are holding out for €80m.

According to Sky Sport Italia, that was not the only offer that Inter received, as Chelsea made a similar bid.

Transfer pundit Gianluca Di Marzio suggests that the Champions League winners might even become the favourites, because they have players who Inter would appreciate as part of an exchange.

Italy international Emerson Palmieri is well known as a target and has been for some time, but the same is true of defender Christensen.

The 25-year-old Dane is only under contract with Chelsea until June 2022 and would reunite with Christian Eriksen at San Siro.
