One of the names first surfaced when Luis Campos took over the sporting advisor role at Paris Saint-Germain was Stade de Reims striker Hugo Ekitike. The 19-year-old is one of the various European clubs are eyeing him this summer, so he’s taking his time on a decision.
Newcastle United initially offered very early on in the process for Ekitike a €36-million plus €10-million in bonuses. The leaders of Reims validated the bid from the Premier League side. However, L’Equipe reports that the player and his entourage want to stall before deciding.
Real Madrid, who hasn’t made an offer to Stade de Reims, has conducted initial approaches with the teenager’s entourage. Also, since the arrival of Campos, PSG has been in the mix.
Nonetheless, the capital club must first conclude the arrival of Christophe Galtier and sell many players before fully embarking on the active phase of its recruitment. Another club that the French media outlet adds who have an interest in the Stade de Reims goal scorer is Bayer Munich.
