Chelsea have reportedly joined the race to sign Inter star Achraf Hakimi alongside Premier League rivals Arsenal, and Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain.

The cash-strapped Serie A champions are reportedly willing to part with one of their star players - a decision that allegedly played a major role in Antonio Conte's decision to leave the club.

Hakimi has been linked with a switch to Arsenal and PSG since before the summer transfer window opened, and now, according to Sky Italia, Chelsea have also emerged as potential suitors for the 22-year-old.

The impressive Moroccan joined from Real Madrid at the start of the season for £40million, and missed just one league game under Conte, as he helped deliver the league title.

Earlier this week, Hakimi's agent dismissed reports linking the full back with a summer move to PSG. According to Calciomercato (h/t Football Italia), his agent Alejandro Camano has quashed reports of a move for the Morocco international.

"He is the best player in Europe in his position. That's why there are so many rumours about him," Camano said. "Hakimi has four years left in his contract with Inter, and I want to clarify I haven't talked to any other club."
