World-class defender prefers Chelsea move over European powerhouses.

Chelsea and their supporters will be thrilled to discover that quality transfer target Achraf Hakimi would prefer a move to the Blues over Paris Saint-Germain, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

Jones shed light on what Hakimi’s transfer decision would be in an appearance on the Football Terrace podcast, with the Eurosport journalist’s statement opposed to one that would’ve riled Blues.

Football Insider announced last week that both Chelsea and PSG have had proposals of £56.1m declined for the world-class right-back, though they also maintained that Hakimi had agreed on personal terms with the Blues.

There appear to be no tangible developments on an advanced bid for the 22-year-old from either club, but Jones has been led to understand that the Moroccan player would pick a switch to West London.

Jones details that the Inter Milan star would ‘love to sign for Chelsea’ as a result of his views on playing in the Premier League.


Jones said:
“The one thing I’m told on this is that Hakimi loves the idea of playing in the Premier League and if it came to a choice for him – he would love to sign for Chelsea.”

“Because he wants to play in the Premier League, he thinks that would be a great place to go.”

“So, if Chelsea and PSG had matching offers and it came down to the player, I believe that Hakimi would choose Chelsea, just on what I’ve been told so far on this deal.”

“Lets see how it progresses really… Obviously money does talk at the end of the day so we have to see how it all adds up. Hakimi – looking to leave Inter Milan for sure, he won’t be the only one.

Hakimi has connected himself as one of the best full-backs around since he left Real Madrid for a two-year loan to Borussia Dortmund, where he starred and received a switch to Inter Milan last summer.

There’s no uncertainty that Hakimi would be an excellent addition to the Chelsea team, who are coming off the back of a Champions League success inspired by the mid-season arrival of Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea acquiring the services of Tuchel would also mark a sweet personal victory for Tuchel, who was fired by PSG a month before he took charge at Stamford Bridge.
