The January transfer window appears to be when Paris Saint-Germain will look to move off from Hugo Ekitike. After an unsuccessful exit this summer transfer window, the Frenchman is an afterthought at PSG.
As a result, the capital club should do right by the player and let him continue his development elsewhere, considering he’s 21. So, who are the clubs expressing interest?
L’Equipe reports (h/t Foot Mercato) that AC Milan in Italy and West Ham United, Everton, and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League are the main interested parties in the former Stade de Reims goal scorer.
How much would Ekitike cost? Well, PSG invested €28 million for him, so it’s like they’ll be looking to recoup that initial investment. Furthermore, with multiple Premier League clubs, a bidding war could bode well for PSG.
Ekitike has to leave once January opens. The Ligue 1 giants invested in buying new strikers this past summer transfer window in Gonçalo Ramos and Randal Kolo Muani.
