Reports: Chelsea join race for Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi

Chelsea are reportedly interested in Real Madrid defender Achraf Hakimi, who is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund. 

The Moroccan has been one of Dortmund's best players this season, scoring seven goals and assisting 10 in the process. 

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is said to be a huge admirer of the 21-year-old, who can play as a right-back or as a rightwinger.

Madrid will however not allow him to leave easily, with the likes of Bayern Munich also showing interest. 

Hakimi is expected to return to Madrid once his loan at the German side ends in June, with the club thought to be keen on giving him a fresh contract that could keep him until at least 2015.

His current deal is set to end in summer 2022, and he has in the past said he would love to star for Zidane's side.

Chelsea though have a promising youngster already in their ranks in Reece James, who can play similar positions to Hakimi.
