The agent of rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target, Achraf Hakimi, has spoken out about the defender’s future and revealed that the right-back is attracting interest from several big clubs in Europe.
Tottenham have been linked with several right-backs over the past two months, although Hakimi is arguably the biggest name to be mentioned in the same breath as Spurs.
The 21-year-old’s reputation has grown substantially during the last two seasons, both of which he has spent on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
The pacy right-back will return to Real Madrid at the end of the season but reports indicate that the Los Blancos may be tempted to cash in on him this summer.
Tottenham have reportedly made the Moroccan international one of their main right-back targets this summer (Bladi.net).
However, Cadena Sar reported earlier this week that Manchester City are set to offer £54m to sign the Real Madrid man.
Hakimi’s agent, Alejandro Camano, has now ruled out the possibility of the defender moving to Bayern Munich and insisted that the right-back is quite relaxed about his future.
Speaking to Goal, Camano said: “There is interest from top European clubs, but I don’t know where the rumours with Bayern have come from. It is not a topic. Nobody from Bayern or Real Madrid spoke to me about a possible move for Achraf to Bayern.
“We are totally relaxed and calm about the future of Achraf. He has a great relationship with Real Madrid and there is currently no reason for any talks because Achraf has a contract with Real Madrid until 2022. We’ll see what happens when he returns to Madrid in the summer.”

Real Madrid might be ready to sell Hakimi due to the state of their finances but he is likely to be sought after by many big clubs around Europe. Therefore, I doubt that we will be able to afford him this summer. I suspect that we are shopping in a tier below Hakimi, with the likes of Thomas Meunier, Timothy Castagne, Nathan Ferguson, and Max Aarons likely to be the sort of names on our wishlist.
