Achraf Hakimi has officially been announced as a Paris Saint-Germain player after penning a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 outfit.

Inter's need to generate funds has seen some of their top talents mooted to be available for transfer this summer, with Hakimi one of those whose departure from the club has been expected for some time.

PSG and Chelsea were two of the frontrunners in the race to sign the Morocco international and it's now been confirmed that the French side have secured the 22-year-old's services.

The former Real Madrid man has signed a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 outfit having passed a medical in Paris on Tuesday, as PSG's bid to bolster their squad as they look to regain their French title from Lille continues to pick up pace.

Having already tempted former Liverpool man Georginio Wijnaldum to Paris despite Barcelona's protracted pursuit of the Dutchman, PSG are also expected to confirm the arrivals of Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma in the near future.

Despite a host of new arrivals already seemingly on their way to PSG, the club have also been linked with moves for Manchester United's Paul Pogba and highly-rated Lille midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.

Even with the riches available to Mauricio Pochettino, it seems highly unlikely that the club will sanction a move for both French midfielders, but that hasn't stopped them lodging their interest in the pair.

Should they prove successful in their bid to lure Pogba to his home country, United could well make a a move for Camavinga after 90min learned the Red Devils see the Lille man as a long-term successor to the World Cup winner.

Even with United keeping tabs on Camavinga it's unlikely a deal will be pursued unless they can generate funds from the sale of Pogba, though his Old Trafford exit is far from out of the question when you consider how active PSG have been in the market so far this summer.
