Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have been linked with Achraf Hakimi.
Real Madrid youth coordinator Stefan Kohfahl believes reported Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal target Achraf Hakimi will become a superstar, Goal report.
The pacey fullback is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
His situation at Madrid is unclear. According to Bladi.net, Tottenham and Arsenal are keen on signing Hakimi who has a £50 million release clause.
Kohfahl, however, is urging the Spanish giants not to let him go.
Speaking to Goal, the youth coordinator believes Hakimi, Federico Valverde and Martin Odegaard have the most potential of all of Madrid’s younger players.
“For me, Hakimi, who I already identified three years ago [has the best chance of going on to be one of the best]. From the current squad, Federico Valverde is my absolute favourite. I can’t imagine the starting eleven without him. There will be a lot of talk about Martin Odegaard as well,” Kohfahl explained.
Hakimi was in stunning form in the Bundesliga prior to the Covid-19 suspension, posting three goals and ten assists in 22 league matches.
The 21-year-old has predominantly featured at right-back. In October, he set a new record by clocking a top speed of 22.49mph, becoming the fastest player in Bundesliga history.
Real Madrid have Dani Carvajal as their number one right-back. The La Liga club, therefore, may be open to Hakimi leaving if the deal is right.
Arsenal could be targeting Hakimi in case Hector Bellerin leaves the Gunners. FC Inter News claim Inter Milan are interested in the Spaniard following a tough campaign.
Spurs, meanwhile, sold Kieran Trippier last summer while Serge Aurier has also had a tough campaign. The defence is a priority for Jose Mourinho to strengthen this summer.
