Arsenal are preparing a firm offer for Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi, according to a report.
The Morocco international has impressed for the Serie A leaders since joining from Real Madrid in a £36m deal last summer.
However, Inter may be forced to sell a couple of their prized assets at the end of the season for financial reasons, with Hakimi among those attracting interest from elsewhere.
Spanish outlet AS claims that the Italian giants are prepared to sell the 22-year-old, who previously starred on loan with Borussia Dortmund, if they are offered £42m.
Madrid have a first-refusal option on Hakimi, but they are not believed to be interested in re-signing the defender.
