Hector Bellerin is on Inter Milan’s options to replace Achraf Hakimi this summer, as the 22-year-old closes in on a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Di Marzio report that although Achraf Hakimi is getting closer to a move to PSG, Inter Milan are in no hurry to sign a replacement. They’re taking their time to evaluate the available opportunities, rather than rushing things and overpaying.

Among the names on their shortlist are Denzel Dumfries of PSV Eindhoven, who is drawing a lot of attention at Euro 2020 right now. Then there’s Davide Zappacosta of Genoa, who appears to be top of the list right now.

But the third name is Hector Bellerin, who we know is likely to be available for a transfer this summer.

Bellerin has already been linked with plenty of clubs in Spain, with Villarreal, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, and Real Betis all credited with an interest. Arsenal are reportedly asking for £20m.

Similar to Inter Milan, Atletico are planning to buy if they sell first. There’s interest in Kieran Trippier from Manchester United, which could give them the means and the motive to move for Bellerin.

Ideally, at least a couple of the named clubs progress from interest to negotiations and spark up a bidding war, but Arsenal are rarely that lucky.
