- Achraf Hakimi spent the last two seasons on loan to Borussia Dortmund
- The Real Madrid defender has arrived Italy ahead of a possible switch to Inter Milan
- He was spotted at the Milan airport ahead of his much-anticipated €45m switch
Ahead of the highly anticipated switch to Inter Milan, Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi has arrived in Italy to complete his much-anticipated €45m switch.
The Moroccan star was spotted touching down at the Milan airport on Tuesday morning as he reportedly heads for the Humanitas Research Hospital and – after that – the offices of the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) for a medical.
Hakimi is expected to sign a five-year contract with Inter, who are paying €40million plus €5million in bonuses for his services.
The 21-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, scoring 12 goals and providing 17 assists in 72 official appearances.
Prior to that, he capitalised on an injury to Dani Carvajal to help Madrid win their third consecutive Champions League in 2017-18.
Primarily a right-sided defender or wingback, he can also play on the opposite flank.
Also, Inter Milan appear to have secured a contract extension for Nigerian football star Victor Moses until the end of the ongoing season.
The 29-year-old's current deal was due at the end of this month after joining the Serie A side on a six months loan move from Chelsea in January.
However, the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic meant the season was prolonged and they have now reached a deal to keep the winger for another two months.
Reports from the Italian club claim the Nerazzurri have been negotiating with the Blues with the aim of reaching another loan deal with the Premier League club but no agreement has been reached yet.
Inter are equally speaking with Manchester United in a bid to retain Alexis Sanchez for another long term loan deal.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Juventus who are the reigning champions of Italy have reportedly confirmed that their former player Andrea Pirlo will become coach for the Under 23 team from next season.
This will be a great achievement for the former AC Milan superstar who was known for his excellent style of play during his active playing days for clubs and national team.
Andrea Pirlo will be replacing Fabio Pecchia who has been in charge of the team for two seasons and he is set to move to an unnamed Italian Serie A side.
