Paris Saint-Germain could see the Hugo Ekitike file heat up in the coming days before the transfer window deadline closes. AC Milan appears to be the preferred destination, but could West Ham United intensify its pursuit?
The Hammers are among the teams in the rumor mill as the Premier League club looks for a striker.
Nonetheless, after Sky Sports News reports that West Ham is looking at alternative targets to Youssef En-Nesyri, it could put them heavily in the Ekitike race.

The English club has been in talks with Sevilla but cannot agree on a deal for the Morocco forward. Still, the London-based side might be challenged to land the 21-year-old too.
La Gazzetta dello Sport recently revealed that Ekitike said yes to joining AC Milan. Furthermore, the PSG striker prefers the Rossoneri over Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham.
It will be interesting to see if the Hammers can swoop in and land one of their backup plans or if Ekitike decides to head to Serie A to join AC Milan.
