The future of Hugo Ekitiké isn’t with Paris Saint-Germain after the recent addition of Gonçalo Ramos from SL Benfica. Furthermore, at 21 years old, it would be ideal for the Frenchman to find a club where he can play starting minutes.
While Ekitiké can’t start at PSG, it doesn’t mean there’s no market for him. The former Stade de Reims star draws interest from two Premier League clubs.
Sports Zone reports that Everton FC has emerged as a potential suitor for the PSG striker. The Toffees has clarified its intentions with an opening offer of €35 million, supplemented by €5 million in possible add-ins.

However, Everton faces competition in pursuing the young forward, as Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham are reportedly interested in securing Ekitike’s services.
Ekitike’s potential move abroad presents an opportunity for the talented forward to further his career in the Premier League. Everton and West Ham could use a young striker to bolster their attack.
West Ham could lose Lucas Paquetá, and Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin has dealt with injuries. So a move for the PSG forward makes sense. There are a couple of weeks until the summer transfer window closes, so it will be interesting to see if either club makes a move.
