West Ham Pushes for PSG’s Hugo Ekitike: How Much Are They Willing to Pay?

Paris Saint-Germain needs to accelerate various transfers to finalize them to advance in their UEFA Champions League group stage. Nonetheless, the primary outgoing transfer is Hugo Ekitike. 

Ekitke’s exit would bring in the funds to help PSG complete the deal for Randal Kolo Muani. For the capital club’s sake, the Frenchman’s departure to West Ham United is moving in a positive direction.

Sports Zone reports that Ekitike and West Ham have an agreement. Furthermore, the English club is ready to pay €40 million, but PSG is blocking the move. Paris wants to sell him to Eintracht Frankfurt to get the green light from the German club for Kolo Muani.

The Hammers are looking for a striker before the summer transfer window closes and have pivoted to Ekitike. According to a report, the Premier League side was in talks with Brazilian club Corinthians over Yuri Alberto. 

However, the two clubs couldn’t agree on a price, prompting West Ham to leave the negotiating table. The report adds that West Ham retains an interest in Ekitike and remains in talks with Jesse Lingard’s representatives over a short-term contract.

Will a deal get done? These next few hours will be crucial.
