Hugo Ekitiké is garnering interest in Serie A as the 21-year-old has an uncertain future at Paris Saint-Germain. If the Frenchman wants to continue his growth, he’ll likely have to go elsewhere.
AC Milan reportedly has Ekitiké as a Plan B option if their pursuit of FC Porto’s Mehdi Taremi fails. However, the Italian club faces competition from a team within their league.
Il Messaggero reports that AS Roma requests information on the former Stade de Reims player. Along with Ekitiké, the capital club is linked to other players to fill their need for a striker like Alvaro Morata and Gianluca Scamacca.

The PSG youngster might be the second player Roma decides to pluck from the Ligue 1 giants this summer transfer window. Renato Sanches is another name that’s linked to the Italian club.
As a result, Roma could send out two former PSG players who need minutes next season. Nonetheless, if AC Milan feels that Ekitiké is the striker they want, it could create a bidding war for him.
