Inter are much more likely to sign loan players to replace Achraf Hakimi rather than spend a big transfer fee, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport today, Inter may sign two players on loan just to replace Achraf Hakimi rather than spending around €20-30 million on a single player.

The two players that the club have lined up are Cagliari’s Nahitan Nandez and Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin. The former has already given his blessing to Inter, showing that he really wants to join the Nerazzurri.

The two clubs need to agree on the parameters of the loan deal. Inter would like to have him on loan with an option to buy the Uruguayan after loan. Cagliari would rather Inter had to buy him at the end of the loan rather than just having the option.

Nahitan Nandez can play in multiple positions including right-back, so Hector Bellerin would be signed on loan too to be the main right-back.
