Achraf Hakimi battle heats up, PSG set with new offer, Chelsea still ‘close’

The Achraf Hakimi transfer battle finally has a feel of reaching a conclusion pretty soon, but where will he end up, PSG or Chelsea?

Both sides are ‘close’ to sealing a deal, according to Sky Italy reporter Angelo Mangiante, who tweeted just moments ago on the situation. He says nothing is done yet and Chelsea are still in the race despite others suggesting PSG are closer.
