Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi emerges as a transfer target for Arsenal, according to a report.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi.

The 21-year-old is due to return to the Bernabeu this summer following two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, where he has contributed 10 goals and 17 assists in 65 appearances.

Hakimi's future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks with the likes of Chelsea, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all believed to be interested in his services.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal have now joined the hunt for the Morocco international, having been impressed by his development over the last two seasons.

Hakimi's agent recently denied suggestions that his client had signed a new deal with Madrid, although the right-back's contract at the Bernabeu does still run until the summer of 2022.

Zinedine Zidane's side are said to be fearful that Hakimi could decide to leave ahead of next season as his path into the first XI is currently blocked by experienced Spain international Dani Carvajal.
