Author of 10 goals this season in Ligue 1, Hugo Ekitike is the target of Newcastle but also of PSG in the transfer window.

Revelation of the season at Stade de Reims, Hugo Ekitike will not delight Champagne supporters for long. Barring an earthquake, the 20-year-old striker will pack his bags during this summer transfer window. Two clubs are vying for the signing of Hugo Ekitike in June: Newcastle and Paris Saint-Germain. And the trend is more than ever for a departure for the Magpies according to information from Chronicle Live, which understands that the player is ready to shorten his vacation in order to complete his signing at Newcastle. The Premier League club and Stade de Reims have been in agreement for several days, but Ekitike had delayed, eager to secure the playing time that would be his if he left for Newcastle.

Ekitike to Newcastle rather than PSG?


After several discussions with the leaders of Newcastle and with coach Eddie Howe, the Stade de Reims striker was probably reassured. Barring a big surprise, the Reims striker will therefore pack his bags for Newcastle this summer. A big blow from the Magpies, who will pay more than 40 million euros to secure the services of the revelation of the season on the side of the Auguste-Delaune stadium in Reims. Twenty days ago, L’Equipe revealed the existence of a total agreement between the Champagne club and Newcastle for the transfer of Hugo Ekitike. The transfer amount should reach 36 million euros plus 10 million euros in almost guaranteed bonuses as well as 15% on a possible resale. A sacred jackpot for the Stade de Reims, which was also in discussion with Luis Campos. PSG were interested but it was ultimately Newcastle who therefore won the bet.
