PSG are actively engaged in transfer activities, now focusing on departures more than new arrivals. One player on the radar for a potential sale is French striker Hugo Ekitike despite his contract runnining through June 2027.

PSG seem inclined to part ways with the former Reims player, and according to Bruno Salomon, the French champions have already landed and accepted an offer coming from English Premier League club Everton.

Everton, which narrowly avoided getting relegated last season, have emerged as a potential destination for Ekitike, with the English club seeking to bolster their attacking options.

Despite Ekitike's struggles to secure consistent playing time at PSG, his potential and youth have drawn the interest of the Premier League side, although Everton are known for doing stupidly bad business when it comes to spending money on players.

An offer of "around €30m" has been submitted to PSG, per sources.

Ekitike's recent performances during PSG's preseason games (2 goals and 1 assist) have not changed the opinion of the Parisian board about the youngster, but they could have helped him land a deal elsewhere judging by Everton's interest in the Frenchman.

If the transfer is completed, Ekitike would face competition on the forward line at Everton, particularly against Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

PSG spent €36m on the striker, and they aim to recoup as much money as possible with this potential sale, whether it ends up with the player landing in Everton or elsewhere.

The move to Everton could provide Ekitike with the playing time and confidence he needs, while Everton aims to keep playing in the Premier League as they inch closer to the inauguration of a new stadium in Liverpool and the financial boost that will eventually give the club.

As the negotiations progress, Ekitike's decision will be pivotal in determining whether this transfer will materialize, as it's been reported that the Frenchman would prefer to stay in his native country and sign with Lens, another club that has shown interest in him of late.
