Wolves and Wolfsburg interested in signing PSG's Hugo Ekitike


Wolverhampton Wanderers have heightened their interest in Hugo Ekitike (21), a striker seemingly sidelined by Paris Saint-Germain, as per L’Équipe.

Ekitike had a brief appearance during the opening day of the Ligue 1 season but has since been absent from the field. He reportedly irked PSG's top brass by refusing to be part of a swap deal involving Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Despite Kolo Muani eventually moving to Parc des Princes, Ekitike seems to have not been pardoned for rejecting the player-plus-cash exchange, leading to his isolation.

Consequently, the French player is eager for a change this January. Despite his recent lack of game time, Ekitike is attracting significant interest. Wolfsburg has approached PSG regarding a paid loan but without an option for a permanent transfer.

Wolverhampton, previously mentioned by RMC Sport, is now intensifying their pursuit, according to L’Équipe. The Premier League team is in ongoing discussions for a loan deal, unlike Wolfsburg's proposal, which includes an option for a permanent move.

Both Wolfsburg and Wolves are indisputably leading the race to sign the former Stade de Reims striker. Considering Ekitike's probable departure from Parc des Princes, Wolverhampton's offer for a permanent transfer from PSG might give them an advantageous position.
