What if PSG snatched the signature of young French striker Hugo Ekitike? While the Newcastle track has seriously cooled, the Parisian club recently met with the leaders of Reims and the agent of the 20-year-old player according to several concordant sources.
According to recent information from L’Équipe, PSG emerged optimistic from this meeting. “With the conviction that he could win the bet in this case”, explains the sports daily. For his part, Ekitike, much appreciated by the new coach Christophe Galtier, does not want to miss the opportunity to sign in the ranks of the Parisian club where Kylian Mbappé plays in particular, whom he takes as a reference, and has even entrusted it to his teammates.
It remains to be seen whether PSG will manage to find an economic agreement with Reims. “Luis Campos does not want to fuel the speculative bubble created by Newcastle’s offer (which, including bonuses, exceeds €40m). Paris does not intend to rush. It’s hard to imagine PSG allocating more than €30m.” concludes The Team.
As a reminder, the newspaper Le Parisien explained on June 28 that Hugo Ekitike did not appear on the shelves of PSG.
