Chelsea have reportedly offered Inter Milan the choice of five players in a bid to land Achraf Hakimi in the ongoing summer transfer window.
Thomas Tuchel is a man that knows he needs to keep improving the side in the transfer window as he will need to add a bit more quality to the squad.
That has led to reports in the media that Chelsea are very interested in trying to secure a transfer deal for Hakimi, who is now regarded as one of the very best defenders in Seria A.
Hakimi helped Inter win the Seria A title this season, but the Italians are in debt and they must sell a number of players in the transfer window in order to balance the books, and Hakimi is a man that they will allow to leave
Chelsea are already believed to have made an initial offer worth €60million (£51.5m) plus a choice of Emerson Palmieri or Andreas Christensen, and According to Corriere dello Sport, the west London club have now offered three more players to try and tempt Inter into selling: Davide Zappacosta, Tammy Abraham and Kovacic.
The Croatian – who played for Inter before joining Real Madrid – is a real surprise given he has been a key player for Thomas Tuchel, with the coach frequently praising his midfielder.
Zappacosta, though, is surplus to requirements and Chelsea are desperate to offload him, while Abraham has fallen so far down the pecking order he did not even make the bench for the FA Cup and Champions League finals
