Inter are hoping they won’t need to sell another big player after Achraf Hakimi, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Gazzetta dello Sport’s print edition confirmed Steven Zhang wanted to raise a profit of €70 million in the summer transfer window, while cutting operating costs by 15%.

Most of the money required will come from Hakimi’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain, which should become official within the next 10 days.

Chelsea remain interested in the Moroccan international but Beppe Marotta and Leonardo’s great relations should secure a deal with the Ligue 1 runners-up.

PSG have offered €60 million for Hakimi so far, bonuses included, but Marotta wants €70 million and is standing firm on that valuation for now.

Once Inter have secured a sale for Hakimi they will also earn money from selling Joao Mario to Sporting CP, which should give them €8 million.

Joao Mario’s move to Sporting CP is almost sorted and an official announcement could be made as early as this week.

Inter will then hope to secure a sale for Valentino Lazaro, who could use Euro 2020 to put himself in the shop window with Austria, and Matias Vecino who is receiving interest from Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti.
