Juventus is prepared to pip Chelsea to Real Madrid defender Acraf Hakimi at the end of the current campaign.

Hakimi is on loan at Borussia Dortmund and he is deemed to return to Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

Hakimi has shown what he is capable of doing and he has subsequently proved his worth to Real Madrid and manager Zinedine Zidane.

The Moroccan defender has put in an excellent performance with the Bundesliga outfit and he has attracted the likes of top clubs in Europe.

The 21-year-old defender has been sensational since his spell with Real Madrid but the availability of Dani Carvajal limited his playing time at the club and it was in the interest of both parties to decide on a loan deal for the young lad.

Hakimi can play across the defence line and can also operate as a wing-back or deployed further in the attack.

According to reports from Andrea Distaso of Calciomercato, Juventus have entered the race to sign Hakimi. They claim that the injury troubles of Mattia de Sciglio and Danilo are the main factor leading the Serie A champions to target the signing of another right-back.

Since the exit of Dani Alves, the Bianconeri have failed to properly fill in this position; they even forced winger, Juan Cuadrado, to fill in.

Juventus are in dire need of a new player in this position, so they will provide stiff competition for Chelsea.

Real Madrid is also keen on keeping the defender following the inconsistency of Carvajal at the right-wing.
