Hugo Ekitiké could be moving soon, with the summer transfer only open for a few more weeks. The 21-year-old striker should be looking for starting minutes, which he won’t receive at Paris Saint-Germain.
The capital club officially announced the arrival of Gonçalo Ramos from SL Benfica this week. As a result, the Portugal international will be playing most of the starting minutes.
Ekitiké’s name is currently linked to Everton and West Ham United. The Toffees has clarified its intentions with an opening offer of €35 million, supplemented by €5 million in possible add-ins.
However, a move to the Premier League might be in the plans for the Frenchman. L’Equipe reports that the young striker would prefer to move to RC Lens, who will play in the UEFA Champions League.

Additionally, Lens finished second in Ligue 1 last season. The French club could look to build off a successful campaign and might consider Ekitiké to be part of that project.
The PSG striker could use this chance to raise his stock to move toward a better league and club.
Ekitike’s potential move presents an opportunity for the talented forward to further his career, whether it’s in the Premier League or Ligue 1.
