Inter have identified Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin as a target to replace the soon-to-depart Achraf Hakimi.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who claim that the Nerazzurri are stepping up their pursuit of the 26-year-old, but will only bring him in if his current club allow him to join initially on loan.

With Hakimi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain set to be confirmed in the next day or two, the Nerazzurri have made finding his replacement a part of their agenda in  the market, and Bellerin’s name has emerged in recent days with the club thought to be serious about bringing the player in.

The Spanish right-back is thought to have the right profile to play on the right side of Inter manager Simone Inzaghi’s system, and the Nerazzurri admire his qualities.

However, the player would only arrive on loan for his first season, with Inter not able to meet the Gunners’ €20 million valuation this summer but hoping to have greater liquidity in the market next summer.
