The full-back has been in sensational form for Borussia Dortmund since his arrival from Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal. Hakimi’s versatility on the flanks comes as an advantage for Lucien Favre’s side having contributed eight goals and 13 assists since the move to Germany.
Meanwhile, Al Nassr forward Abderrazak Hamdallah who was named the Arab Player of the Year helped Al Nassr to win the Saudi Professional League last season, scoring 34-goals in 26 games which earned him the league’s Player of the Season for the 2018-19 campaign. The 29-year-old recently retired from international duty in November.
