According to the report, Chelsea are in talks to bring in highly-rated Inter Milan’s RWB Hakimi Achraf this summer. However, a Chelsea fan and Twitter user Expected Chelsea explained why Blues fans shouldn’t get swept up in the hype of signing Hakimi Achraf just yet.
He wrote: “Let’s talk about Achraf Hakimi.”
1. He’s a world-class RWB. Arguably the best in the world.
2. He’s absolutely not worth €60m as a RB, RW or LWB.
“He’s not world-class there. What happens if we move to 4 at the back. One of Reece or Hakimi will have to leave – who goes?
“The response to the Hakimi saga sounds a lot like our fanbase reacting to Alaba rumours at one point. Everyone wants world-class players but does he really fit the finances?
“You can’t say no to a player of his quality but I don’t feel good about this transfer.
“If he comes, great, that’s one more world-class player albeit one who is elite only at one specialized position.
“If he doesn’t come, also great, we can spend our money more sensibly.”
At the moment, the Blues have reportedly made contact with Inter Milan regarding Hakimi already and a move in the region of €60m is thought to be a real possibility.
