Will Hugo Ekitike resist offers from outside clubs again this winter? After turning them down in the summer, risking the arrival of Randal Kolo-Muani, the PSG striker has been left out of coach Luis Enrique’s starting lineups. At 21 years old, the former Reims player doesn’t have much time to waste.
Eintracht Frankfurt is the favorite
Ekitike still has a respectable price on the transfer market. L’Equipe has linked him with Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. While the former is a possibility mentioned by British bookmakers, the latter is not. Eintracht is even the leading contender at the moment, with odds of 2.1 that Hugo Ekitike will be playing there by the end of the winter transfer window.
Germany or England for Ekitike
This is even more likely than the possibility of him staying at Paris Saint-Germain, which is at 2.5 to 1. The other clubs linked with Ekitike are Crystal Palace and Hoffenheim in Germany, both at odds of 4, and Newcastle United at a longer odds of 9.
The odds suggest that Ekitike is likely to move to Germany or England this winter. Eintracht Frankfurt is the favorite, as they are a Champions League club with a good track record of developing young players. Crystal Palace and Hoffenheim are also possible destinations, but they are not as attractive as Eintracht. Newcastle United is a long shot, but they have the financial resources to make a big offer.
Ekitike is a talented young striker with a lot of potential. He is a strong, athletic player with good finishing skills. He would be a valuable addition to any club.
