Hugo Ekitike has been linked with a move to Juventus or Newcastle

Newcastle United

Hugo Ekitike of PSG has been linked with a move to Juventus as the French club seeks to offload him.
Last summer, they paid roughly 40 million euros for Hugo Ekitike from Reims, who was intended to be their main striker. After having 16 goal involvements in 1462 minutes of activity the previous year. He has four goals and three assists in 1095 minutes this season.

Ekitike could be sold by PSG

The Frenchman, though, has not been sufficiently skilled to push his way into the lineup.
PSG is now looking to cut their losses and sell him to any team interested in acquiring him.
Even if Lionel Messi is expected to depart Barcelona in the summer. The French club is looking for a new home for Ekitike, according to Corriere dello Sport.

In preparation for a potential summer transfer, Juventus and AC Milan are keeping an eye on the player’s status at Parc des Princes. Newcastle could also make a second attempt to sign the Frenchman.

Newcastle target Ekitike again

According to L’Equipe, Newcastle will try to sign the young striker again this summer, with PSG looking to sell Ekitike after only one season. This season, the attacker has four goals and three assists in 27 appearances for PSG. His loan agreement is scheduled to become permanent this summer.
Ekitike has turned down the Magpies twice, first staying with Reims in January last season before joining PSG in the summer. According to Le Parisien, the reigning French champions would sign Ekitike on a permanent basis before releasing him in the summer.

The striker, who is now valued at €25 million by Transfermarkt, would require a good salary from Newcastle.

Juventus has enough striking-firepower

Juve have three excellent strikers who are unable to score on a consistent basis. However, signing another man is not the solution. The club must find a way to get goals from them, and having four forwards in the group by next season will be ludicrous. The striking department is not a portion of our squad that has to be strengthened. Therefore, they must focus our efforts on other areas of the squad.  Above all for the time being, Moise Kean, Dusan Vlahovic, and Arkadiusz Milik will suffice.

Ekitike’s contract expires in 2027. Therefore it seems unlikely that PSG, who are apparently keen to increase the number of French players at the club, would authorise a transfer without fully utilising the striker’s unquestionable abilities. Ekitike has reportedly stated a wish to stay in the French city after this season. In conclusion He is driven by a desire to thrive at the club. The upcoming season may be crucial in determining the young player’s long-term destiny if PSG decides to keep him.
