Achraf Hakimi Price Tag – How much the Defender is Truly Worth

Why Hakimi isn't worth the 80 Million euros quoted by Inter Milan

It’s no more news chelsea are on the neck of Inter Milan to sell to them their prized 22 year old talented Right wing back, Inter quoted 80 million euros (a prize outrageous for someone that isn’t solid Defensively) But How much is Hakimi really worth? You’ll find out the real Achraf Hakimi price tag in this article and also his weakness.

Inter Milan bought the Sensational Defender from Real Madrid after two successive loan spells at Borrusia Dortmund where he played quite a number of positions during his two year stint with the yellow armies.

Achraf Hakimi Defensive inability

During his first season with Borrusia Dortmund he played left back where he thrived only when attacking but was exposed when he had to defend, his Defensive inability was one of the reasons Dortmund lost the bundesliga tittle narrowly to Bayern Munich.

Blames where narrowed to Dortmund former manager Lucien favre on how Tactical incompetent he was as he refused to change the tactics that saw his side almost turn into an unbeatable beast that season.

Even though favre could be held accountable to part of the blame on why Dortmund lost the bundesliga tittle that season Hakimi Defensive incompetence was a huge reason they failed to clinch the title.

In his season stint with Dortmund favre sought out to use the then Real Madrid loanee in the position he preferred and switched his Tactical gameplay from 4-2-3-1 to 3-5-2 where he was deployed to the Right wing back position a position where he would forget about his Defensive inability and focus on displaying his attacking abilities in full.

He moved to inter Milan from Real Madrid for the sum of 45 million euros as Dortmund were reluctant in spending much to land the Defender they instead opted to bring Thomas meunier from Psg.

Hakimi last season produced 11 Assists and 7 goals in 45 appearances for the club to help them secure their first league title since 2010 thereby ending Juventus dominance in the league.

His Defensive play under Conte improved Abit atleast better than when he was at dortmund.

While inter have quoted 80 Million euros for the Defender that price looks quite outrageous, Hakimi is worth 60 million euros nothing more or less according to Transfermarkt. It’s not a surprise both chelsea and PSG are quoting that same amount for the young Defender.

Who will likely sign Hakimi?

Psg have migrated their game from keeping majority of possession to actually being a counter attacking team. Psg currently do not have an established right wing back when the the only right back or right wing back they have currently being Colin Dagba an academy graduate one cannot depend so much on.

Psg would like not sign Florenzi permanently and allow the right back move back to his parent club Roma, there is no competition in Right wing back for Hakimi in Psg.

Meanwhile chelsea have three to four players capable of playing that position (Reece James, Cesar Azipiculeta, Callum Hudson odoi and livramento) While an enormous price tag might push Hakimi to being a starter for chelsea his move to chelsea would be considered a luxury signing.

Hakimi himself prefers a move to Psg.
