Hugo Ekitike, who has been at a standstill in his career for nearly all of his time at PSG, has reportedly drawn interest from several foreign clubs that might entertain signing the player on a transfer through January.

The 21-year-old French striker, who has not played for PSG since August 12, is likely to move during the winter transfer window as long as PSG receives an offer from any club interested in the youngster.

Despite PSG's preference for a sale, the club seems inclined towards a loan with an option to buy the player in the future. Such a move, however, wouldn't be paid by PSG. Instead, the French champions want whoever gets Ekitike on loan to pay him the full wage as it's stipulated in his contract.

RMC Sport has reported the names of three clubs interested in Ekitike: Wolverhampton from the English Premier League, and Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt from the German Bundesliga.

Wolves, where former PSG player Pablo Sarabia currently plays, is a potential destination for Ekitike as both clubs already established a relationship in dealing a year ago. Wolves' connection with agent Jorge Mendes could ease negotiations too.

Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt have also shown interest, with Frankfurt being a former suitor that Ekitike previously turned down, and Wolfsburg seen as an ancillary option without much interest in the player for now.

In addition to these clubs, Olympique Lyonnais has been mentioned as interested in a loan, and AC Milan, West Ham, and Crystal Palace have also been linked with Ekitike in recent months. Despite limited playing time this season, Ekitike seems to still have some stock around Europe, most probably because of his youth more than what he's shown and proved on the actual football field.
