Chelsea have been reported to be among clubs chasing the signature of Inter Milan right-back Hakimi Achraf this summer. Now as per La Repubblica, Chelsea are in the front seat in the race for Achraf Hakimi as they’ve submitted a £51m bid to Inter Milan, as well as offering one of Marcos Alonso and Emerson.
However, it is Alonso who seems to be Inter’s preferred choice as their new coach Simone Inzaghi is likely to persist with a back three, a formation that suits the Spaniard the best.

The Blues stand to benefit as Brighton consider Lamptey sale. The Chelsea academy graduate joined Brighton in January 2020, but the Blues have inserted a sell-on clause in that deal.
Now, according to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are interested in Tariq Lamptey, and Brighton could demand anything up to ₤50m which would result in a windfall for Chelsea.
