PSG have confirmed the arrival of 22-year-old Moroccan international right back Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.

The deal is believed to be worth 60 million Euros plus up to eight million Euros in bonuses. The player has signed a five-year contract with the Parisians and represents the first summer signing for PSG that has involved a transfer fee, following the free transfer arrivals of Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool) and Gianluigi Donnarumma (AC Milan).

Hakimi replaces Alessandro Florenzi in the first team squad, after the Italian full-back disappointed on loan with an option to buy from AS Roma, leading to PSG deciding not to activate his option to buy which was estimated to be close to eight million Euros.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the defender said he was very pleased to finally join the French giants.

“I feel a lot of pride today. After my experiences in Spain, in Germany and in Italy, PSG offer me an opportunity to discover a new league wearing the colours of one of the most prestigious clubs in the world.

“I am excited to meet my new team-mates, the fans and to feel this extraordinary fervour that reigns over the Parc des Princes. I share with the coach and the players the same ambitions that are very elevated and I will do everything to give my club what it is expecting from me.”
