Moroccan star Achraf Hakimi has set his sights on becoming a major part of Paris Saint Germain (PSG)’s illustrious history in the coming years.

The world-class full-back joined the French giants last month from Italian side Inter Milan in a deal worth €60 million (£52m/$71m), plus €10m (£9m$12m) in add-ons.

Hakimi is playing with some of the best footballers in the world at PSG – Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The 22-year-old has recorded two assists and one goal for the Parisians thus far this season and he has revealed his ambitions at the club.

“It’s going very well. I am happy in this incredible city and team. Everyone is very kind to me,” Hakimi said on Goal France.

“When I landed, I went to discover the city, of which I am told its good. For now, I’ve had dinner near the Eiffel Tower. I walked along the Louvre Museum and walked around a bit.

“I am honoured to have signed for PSG. A great club, historic, ambitious. You know the great team we have, the players who are here and those who want to come.”

PSG are France’s most successful club, they have won over 40 official honours including nine league titles and one major European trophy.

“I am happy to be part of this club. I hope to do beautiful things there and leave my name in its history (…) Try to win, achieve the collective goals, win all the trophies possible,” Hakimi added.

“And personally, enjoy and engrave my name in the history of PSG.”

Hakimi is widely considered one of the best defenders [3][4][5] and one of the best right-backs in the world.
