Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi is called back to Madrid at the end of current season. He is thought to be a target for Premier League side Chelsea

The defender has done extremely well during his loan spell in Germany and it is no surprise that the top clubs want to sign him. Hakimi is one of the most talented young defenders in Europe right now. 22-year-old right back was adjudged fastest in the Bundesliga from the time the speed record is maintained.

The player is owned by Real Madrid and Los Blancos are highly unlikely to sanction a sale right now. Los Blancos have called him back to Madrid after the current season. Hakimi is highly rated by the Spanish club and they see him as the long term replacement for Dani Carvajal. Zidane must be looking forward to have his service

The Dortmund full back is outstanding going forward and he is blessed with immense technical ability. He seems like an ideal alternative to Carvajal on paper. The player’s agent also believes that his client’s future is at Bernabeu.

Chelsea need a quality right back and he would have been a sensational signing for them.However, they will find it difficult to convince the La Liga giants to sell a prospect like Hakimi just yet. 

Chelsea have the money to pay up for the player but Real Madrid are loaded with resources and they are under no pressure to sell. 

It will be interesting to see if Hakimi returns to Real Madrid after this season.

Perhaps another year on loan at Dortmund would be ideal for him. The pressure is high at Real Madrid and Hakimi is still very young with a lot to learn.

He can improve at his own pace with regular first team football at Dortmund.
