PSG join race to sign Moroccan defender Achraf Hakimi

Moroccan star Achraf Hakimi will be a subject of a tug of war bids as French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly entered the race to sign the Real Madrid man this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, PSG are facing competition from Juventus and Chelsea for Hakimi’s signature.

The 21-year-old right back who is on loan at Borussia Dortund has played 37 games for the Bundesliga side scoring seven goals and ten assists in all competitions.

The Moroccan is a product of the Real Madrid Academy and has played 17 games for the main team with a Champions League winner’s medal in the successful 2017-18 campaign.

He is due to return to the Bernabeu when his two-year loan at Borussia Dortmund ends but the German are said to be keen to keep the player on permanent basis.

Hakimi who is currently valued at €60 million, was voted young player of the year at the 2019/2020 CAF Awards and was also named in the CAF best XI.
