Achraf Hakimi's agent insists that the defender is "happy" at Inter Milan as rumours surrounding a possible summer move to Arsenal continue to swirl.

The agent of Inter Milan full-back Achraf Hakimi has insisted that his client is "happy" in Italy amid speculation surrounding a move to Arsenal.

With Hector Bellerin believed to be on his way out of the Emirates this summer, the Gunners have been tipped to bring in a new right-back ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

Hakimi, understood to be valued at £40m, has subsequently been linked with a move to Mikel Arteta's side ahead of the upcoming transfer window, but the 22-year-old's representative has been quick to pour cold water over those rumours.

Speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss, agent Alejandro Camano said: "Hakimi is happy at Inter with [Antonio] Conte, who is an excellent coach. Conte's style of play suits Achraf and I think he will end up improving a lot because of this experience with the Nerazzurri."

After a two-year loan spell at Borussia Dortmund between 2018 and 2020, Hakimi secured a permanent move to San Siro last summer from Real Madrid, and he has flourished in Conte's 3-5-2 system.

The Morocco international has scored six goals and set up six more in all competitions this term, as well as starting 20 top-flight games for the Scudetto favourites.
