(CNN) --

French judicial authorities have opened an investigation into Moroccan soccer player Achraf Hakimi for rape, a source close to the investigation confirmed to CNN on Tuesday.

The Nanterre prosecutor's office, just outside Paris, is leading the investigation, the source added.

Hakimi, a Moroccan born in Spain, is a winger for Paris Saint-Germain and plays for the Morocco national team.

He scored the penalty that led Morocco to the semifinals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

"The Nanterre public prosecutor does not wish to comment on this ongoing investigation, as the information already published jeopardizes the investigations necessary to find the truth," the public prosecutor's office told CNN.

CNN has contacted Hakimi and PSG for comment.


Hakimi, considered one of the best defenders in the world, arrived at PSG in 2021 from Inter Milan.

He now plays alongside superstars like Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.

Due to his impressive performances both at club and international level last year, the 24-year-old was named in the best men's XI at FIFA's annual The Best awards ceremony in Paris on Monday.
