Report explains why Tottenham Hotspur were not in the Achraf Hakimi race

Morocco worldwide Achraf Hakimi will leave Borussia Dortmund this summer after two years on loan from Real Madrid, the Bundesliga club's sporting director Michael Zorc said Saturday.

As MARCA reported last January, Achraf had doubts on whether a return would be a wise decision, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund both interested in acquiring his services.

However, in recent days, Inter have jumped into the lead in the race to sign the Moroccan star, with the Italian side linked with a €40 million (£36m/$45m) deal to bring him to Italy.

"The objective of the club and the Zhang family is to make investments, taking the opportunities that the market offers", Marotta told Sky Sport Italia when asked about signing Hakimi.


"I confirm that we are in an advanced negotiation for Hakimi".

"I wont hide the fact that we are at an advanced stage of the negotiations but I want to underline that we are still in a unusual phase and I also want to underline the importance of the current squad that will take to the pitch tonight. This is an operation that, with the times that are going, is really very, very important". We want to raise the bar, it's the will of the owner.

He joined Dortmund on loan in July 2018 and has scored seven goals in 53 league appearances for the Bundesliga side. He can play at right- and left-back as well as on either flank as a winger but Real have made it clear that he would start next season as back-up to Dani Carvajal, prompting the 21-year-old to look at other options.
