Paris Saint-Germain wants to continue revamping their attack before the summer transfer window closes. The Ligue 1 giants have long had their eyes on Eintracht Frankfurt star Randal Kolo Muani.
However, the German club will want straight cash and no players to offset the cost, even though they value PSG striker Hugo Ekitike. Sky Sports News’ Florian Plettenberg reports that Frankfurt wants €100 million for the French striker.

While the Bundesliga side is intrigued by the prospect of Ekitike, if they want the money, it’s likely due to wanting to spread that transfer fee across the squad and into the club.
As for Ekitike, Frankfurt’s desire not to have the 21-year-old in a transfer for Kolo Muani is good news for clubs like AC Milan and Everton FC. Both clubs are in the mix for the PSG youngster, and so this reported news is a transfer boost for their aspirations to land the player.
Le Parisien reports that Everton and AC Milan are emerging as frontrunners. The two sides have shown interest in signing French talent Ekitike and have begun engaging in discussions with his entourage.
What will happen to Kolo Muani and Ekitike? These next few days will be fascinating to follow.
