Chelsea offer Kovacic, others in exchange for Hakimi
Chelsea are ready to give Inter Milan three more players, including Mateo Kovacic in a swap deal for their player, Achraf Hakimi, Corriere dello Sport reports.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have made signing a new right wing-back one of their top priorities this summer transfer window and Hakimi is their number one target.
The UEFA Champions League winners are already believed to have made an initial offer worth £51.5million plus a choice of Andreas Christensen or Emerson Palmieri, but are now trying to increase their offer.
The Blues have now offered three more players, Kovacic, Davide Zappacosta and Tammy Abraham, to try and tempt the Serie A champions into selling Hakimi.
Hakimi scored seven goals and registered eight assists for Inter Milan last season.
The 22-year-old joined Inter Milan from Real Madrid last year.
