Agent speaks out on future of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur-linked Achraf Hakimi
The 21-year-old has impressed during his two-year loan at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid and is now thought to be one of the most highly sought-after full-backs in Europe – though the Gunners and Spurs are far from the only reported suitors.
To date, Hakimi has made 66 senior appearances for Dortmund in all competitions, registering 10 goals and 17 assists, and helped his side register a 4-0 win over rivals Schalke in their first Bundesliga game back after the shutdown.
The Daily Mail claimed last month that Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus all want the Morocco international, while Inter Milan have also been linked with the full-back.
However, Alejandro Camano has dismissed suggestions that the Serie A side have made a move for his client and simply said that he’ll be returning to the Bernabeu at the end of the season.
“There is no such offer [from Inter], we will return to Madrid at the end of the season,” Alejandro Camano told Moroccan outlet Assahifa, as quoted by Goal.com. “Achraf will be the best player in the world in his position.”
Hakimi has earned rave reviews for his exploits at Dortmund, and it’s little surprise to see links with some top teams, but in that sense, why would Real want to part ways with a 21-year-old rising star who has shown he can cut it at the highest level?
Los Blancos finished the 2018-19 season empty handed and, although things have picked up this season, Zinedine Zidane will have an eye on next season and beyond, and a player like Hakimi is likely to be in his first-team plans.
