The future of Hugo Ekitike isn’t with Paris Saint-Germain, considering the attackers the capital club has on their squad. Nonetheless, in the final hours of the transfer window, he’s yet to exit.
Furthermore, while the French giants have pushed Ekitike to join Eintracht Frankfurt, the 21-year-old has constructed a side deal with Crystal Palace. However, PSG isn’t too happy with how the young striker is handling the situation.
Fabrizio Romano reports that PSG is surprised at the behavior of the Ekitike entourage, which started negotiations with Crystal Palace without notifying the Parisian management.

As the minutes tick by, the Ligue 1 side has little time to offload the player and secure a transfer fee to further fund their pursuit of Randal Kolo Muani. Still, as time passes, the chances of a sale get slimmer and slimmer.
Will there be one club that decides to come with a dry sale offer, or will Ekitike be stuck riding the bench until the winter transfer window? Buckle up; it’s going to be a wild next few hours.
