Achraf Hakimi and Lautaro Martinez remain the two players likeliest to be sold by Inter in the summer to help meet financial objectives at the club, but of the two Hakimi is the one who the Nerazzurri are likeliest to come up with an agreement with a buyer on.
Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport are reporting that the agent of both players, Alejandro Camano, is working on facilitating the Moroccan’s move away and trying to incite a bidding war for his signature.
This is thought to be because the possibility of a concrete offer which Inter would consider accepting for Martinez remains far off despite interest in the player, while PSG and Chelsea look set to step up their pursuit of Hakimi.
In Martinez’s case, it is thought that Spanish giants Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are in monitoring the Argentine.
However, Atletico’s offer of €40 million plus a further €10 million is add-ons is far from a valuation that Inter would seriously consider, while the Blaugarana’s situation is complicated because they will have to wait until Joan Laporta takes over as club president before seriously beginning talks.
Hakimi on the other hand is a player who Inter have been in talks with both PSG and Chelsea on the sale of for some time, with both clubs considering improving their offers.
Inter are currently thought to prefer a deal with the English club as it could potentially include Marcos Alonso going the other way in addition to a fee.
The Spaniard is reportedly Inter’s number-one target on the left side of the squad.
