Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi is heading to Paris Saint-Germain, and the reigning Serie A champions will be in the market for a right wing-back. New manager Simone Inzaghi could be eyeing a familiar name as they look at various options to replace the 22-year-old. 

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Lazio News 24), Inter Milan will have a week to see if there will be “an opportunity” to give Inzaghi at least one right wing-back before starting their pre-season preparations, scheduled for 8 July. 

The targets Inter Milan could pursue to replace Hakimi are Arsenal‘s Hector Bellerin, Lazio’s Manuel Lazzari, and Chelsea‘s Davide Zappacosta

According to the report, Lazzari remains the manager’s favorite, considering the two worked together at Lazio, so there wouldn’t be much of an adjustment period. Inzaghi knows that the 27-year-old is fast and reliable; a perfect pawn to exalt himself at full range in his 3-5-2 formation.

Nonetheless, Bellerin has more international experience. However, there would be an adjustment period since he would be arriving in a new language and a new system of play. The full-back, who grew up in Barcelona, has always played in a four-man back-line, it would take longer to adjust.

Zappacosta is instead an excellent alternative to play on either the left or right flank and would be the most cost-effective solution.
