L’Equipe’s Loïc Tanzi reports that Crystal Palace will make a loan offer with an option to buy for Ekitike. Furthermore, The prospect of playing in the Premier League appeals to the Frenchman. 

While the former Stade de Reims player understands he’ll have to play elsewhere for minutes as a starter, Ekitike still wants control of where his career will continue.

French journalist Marc Mechenoua reports that Ekitike is not satisfied with the two contractual offers Eintracht Frankfurt has made to him. The PSG player also wants to avoid being part of a swap deal for Randal Kolo Muani. As a result, he wants two separate operations.
