Arsenal and Chelsea target Achraf Hakimi has teased a potential switch to the Premier League, admitting he has a decision to make over his Real Madrid future this summer.
The Morocco right-back has spent the last two seasons on loan at Borussia Dortmund, scoring 10 goals in 65 appearances for the German outfit.
He has developed into one of the most talented defenders in European football at Signal Iduna Park and is therefore attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea.
Yet Bayern Munich, Paris St-Germain, Juventus and Tottenham are also being linked with a move for him.
Hakimi still has over two years to run on his current Madrid contract, meaning he will return to the Bernabeu upon the expiry of his loan at Dortmund in June.
But in a boost for London duo Arsenal and Chelsea, the man himself has revealed he is yet to make a decision over his next move.

“Who does not like it [being linked with big clubs]? I am proud of what I am doing,” he told Cadena SER .
“In June I will have to make a decision and it will be a great step for my career. In theory, my contract ends in June and from there I have to return to Madrid.
Chelsea are also said to be interested
“I have not yet had contact with Madrid on this matter, but I imagine that soon we will have some conversation to find out what is best for me.
“I don’t know when my contract ends, that subject is taken by my agent.
“It is the same contract that I signed in 2017.”
