According to Sky Sports Italia, Inter Milan are more convinced by Chelsea’s offer because of the club’s interest in the players involved.
Inter only want to get Palmieri on loan while Chelsea want to sell the player immediately.
The two clubs remain in talks and have not reached an agreement for the player.
MySportDab understands that Chelsea’s offer of £56m is still short of Inter’s asking price.
Hakimi has impressed for Inter Milan this season at the San Siro after winning his first Serie A Title with the Nerazzurri.
After joining from Real Madrid last summer, the 22-year-old missed only one league match under Antonio Conte at Inter.
Hakimi is now also linked with a move to PSG for £50m, since Coach Antonio Conte resigned.
