In the current winter transfer market, PSG has highlighted the case of Hugo Ekitike as a priority in terms of departures. Although Eintracht Frankfurt seems to be the most likely destination for the player, the financial aspect could complicate the operation.
Hugo Ekitike is at the top of the list of players that PSG plans to part ways with. Several clubs, including Wolfsburg, Wolverhampton, and Eintracht Frankfurt, have expressed interest in the forward.
The latter seems to be in the best position, as it is rumored that the Bundesliga's sixth-placed team already has an agreement with PSG's number 44, who has reportedly agreed to a reduction in his salary. However, negotiations between the two clubs could slow down the operation.
PSG and Eintracht Frankfurt at odds in striker sale negotiations
According to BILD, Eintracht Frankfurt would be willing to offer between 15 and 18 million euros, but PSG's demands are higher. This disagreement in figures would be the main obstacle in the negotiation for Hugo Ekitike, according to the German newspaper.
It is worth noting that previous reports suggested that the operation would be carried out through a loan with an option to buy. The amount mentioned by BILD could be considered part of that purchase option. In summary, Ekitike's future appears to be at a standstill due to economic discrepancies between the clubs.
