Arsenal are making a return for defender Ashraf Hakimi, according to reports in Italy.
Soccer. London It was reported back in May 2020 that the Gunners were interested in Hakimi.
That was when he was playing for Real Madrid and his subsequent move to Inter didn’t seem to disappoint them.

Mikel Arteta is reportedly facing competition from his former Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
City need a new left-back, and neither Benjamin Mendy nor Oleksandr Zinchenko have been entirely convincing in recent seasons.
Chelsea are also keen on Hakimi, who could bomb forward from full-back to a full-back three under Thomas Tuchel.
That means another season without the Champions League is likely to be a major shortcoming for Arsenal in their search for a defender.

He won’t come cheap either, with reports that Inter will demand more than the £35m they paid to sign Hakimi.
Kieran Tierney has settled on Arsenal’s left-back position and Hakimi will not be joining any club as a substitute, though cover is required.
Arsenal will also not spend more than £35m on their second option, but he will likely replace Hector Bellerin at right-back.
It remains to be seen what Arsenal will do in the summer, but it is clear that their plans are already being drawn, even though the winter window has just closed.
