Achraf Hakimi completes PSG deal

Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Inter full-back Achraf Hakimi.

The Morocco international will cost in the region of £52million plus £9million in add-ons.

Achraf Hakimi leaves the Serie A champions Inter Milan after just one season playing in Italy’s top flight.

The transfer comes as a significant blow for Inter.

Achraf Hakimi is considered to be one of the game’s top attacking full-backs.

However, financial struggles mean the transfer has become a necessity.

For PSG, meanwhile, the signing of Hakimi represents a significant coup as Mauricio Pochettino’s side look to recover from what was a disappointing 2020-21 campaign that saw them miss out on the Ligue 1 title.

Georginio Wijnaldum has already arrived from Liverpool.

Meanwhile goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is also expected to join on a free transfer from AC Milan.
