Since he arrived at San Siro Stadium, Hakimi’s versatility has made him a key player in Inter’s defence and attack with a contribution of three assists and four goals in Serie A so far.

Six months into life in Italy, the 22-year-old has found his love in Milan and he disclosed one of the most memorable moments of his career.

“I like Milan a lot, I’ll learn more about it as time passes but one thing I love is definitely the pasta. While I was in Madrid I always loved the food and the people but that’s my home and my family lives there,” Hakimi told Inter Milan matchday programme via Sempre Milan.

“Playing football has always been my biggest ambition since I was a child, playing for the fans and for my national team. One of the biggest emotions I’ve experienced in my career was playing in the 2018 World Cup.”

Hakimi is in contention to make his 15th Serie A appearance when Inter Milan host struggling Crotone for Sunday’s league fixture.

The Nerazzurri are on a 10-match unbeaten run and they are second on the league standings, a point behind city rivals AC Milan.

When quizzed about the fastest player in Antonio Conte’s team, the two-time African Youth Player of the Year said: “As for the fastest player, I think it’s probably me! Besides me… Romelu Lukaku.”
