In these next few days, Paris Saint-Germain will have to settle the future of Hugo Ekitike. The 21-year-old striker’s name is in various rumors linking him to several clubs, one being AC Milan.
Before the summer transfer window closes, the Italian club wants to bring in a striker. With the latest update on this file, the Serie A side could take the next step in bringing the young striker to San Siro.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Ekitike said yes to joining AC Milan. The former Stade de Reims player will likely be taken under the wing of fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud should he arrive.
🚨 Secondo la @Gazzetta_it, Hugo #Ekitike ha detto sì al #Milan, potrebbe essere lui il vice #Giroud. L'ex #Reims preferisce i rossoneri rispetto ad #Eintracht e #WestHam, ora si tratta con il #PSG per un prestito con diritto di riscatto, no all'obbligo. pic.twitter.com/seQM7EWJ8I

Furthermore, the PSG striker prefers the Rossoneri over Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham United. Now, AC Milan is negotiating with PSG for a loan with the option to buy, not the obligation.
If the reporting is accurate, this next step shouldn’t be surprising. Le Parisien recently revealed 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.
Can the Serie A giant close the deal now?
