According to Sport1 report Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich did, in fact, make inquiry on Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi last summer, but was not willing to pay the asking price on the player.

We saw reports on Tuesday that the Bavarians were contemplating another run at Hakimi, but Inter Milan is not willing to part with one of its key players. Per Plettenberg, Hakimi would cost any suitors €45 million or more. However, Plettenberg also said that Bayern Munich has not made any initial offer:

The common theme throughout all of the updates seems to be that Bayern Munich eager to move on from current back-up right-back Bouna Sarr. Sarr, who was signed to a four-year deal last summer has not been able to convince anyone on Säbener Straße.

While Hakimi certainly has a skill-set that would seemingly be an ideal fit for any system run by Julian Nagelsmann, Inter Milan won’t sell Hakimi and Bayern Munich likely would not be able to pay the asking price just yet anyway.
