Paris Saint-Germain has given the green light to Everton’s offer for Hugo Ekitiké. This bid signals a significant development in the 21-year-old’s future. The Toffees are linked to the Frenchman, who has no future in Paris.
As a result, the Premier League club hopes to ensure they land the young goal scorer. Playing at Goodison Park could allow him to continue his development.
Sports Zone reports that PSG has accepted Everton’s offer, which includes €35 million upfront and an additional €5 million in possible add-ons. While PSG’s acceptance of Everton’s bid is significant, Ekitiké must evaluate his options carefully before making a final commitment.
Among the other clubs expressing interest, Eintracht Frankfurt, West Ham United, and RC Lens remain in contention.

The decision ahead of Ekitiké involves considering multiple factors: The sporting prospects, club environment, playing time opportunities, and the development trajectory.
Furthermore, PSG announced this week the arrival of Gonçalo Ramos from SL Benfica. The Portugal international will likely soak up a lot of starting minutes. So it would be ideal for the former Stade de Reims star to continue his development elsewhere.
