Mercato | Mercato Mercato – PSG: Campos still has a card to play for this Ligue 1 crack
Football – Mercato – PSG
Closely followed by Paris Saint Germain, Hugo Ekitike (Stade de Reims) maintains the suspense when it comes to his future. While Newcastle would have reached an agreement with the Champagne club to obtain the services of the tricolor striker, the latter would still not have said yes to join the Magpies.
Always looking for the first Champions League in its history, Paris Saint Germain wants to give itself all possible means to triumph on the French and European scene. This is reflected in the recent appointment of Luis Campos as a football consultant. Moreover, the Portuguese would already be at work to strengthen the Parisian workforce. In the offensive sector, the capital club would be interested in the profile ofHugo Ekitikeauthor of a season full of promise with the Reims Stadium.

Fierce competition on the file
Whether Paris would have expressed interest in Hugo Ekitike (20 years), it is indeed Newcastle who would have taken control of this file. Already interested in Ekitike during the winter transfer window last January, the Magpies would have gone on the attack as soon as the summer window opened, and would have managed to reach an agreement with the Reims Stadium for his transfer. But the case keeps dragging on…
Hugo Ekitike takes his time to seal his future
Although the agreement between Reims and Newcastle would date from several weeks ago, Hugo Ekitike is still not officially a player of the Magpies, far from there. Indeed, according to information from RMC Sportsthe striker, who doesn’t really seem to want to leave England, would like to take his time to choose the best decision for his future. As specified RMC Sportsthe tricolor would be courted by several teams, but for the moment, only the English club would have agreed with the Reims Stadium.
Hugo Ekitike finally left to stay in Reims?
If the PSG would be discreet for the moment on this file, Hugo Ekitike could quite play the 2022-2023 season with the Reims Stadium. During a recent interview, the president of Reims, Jean-Pierre Caillot, explained that players with an exit voucher had to leave the team before July 10, a date which is therefore fast approaching. For his part, the Champagne coach Oscar Garcia even suggested at a press conference that the French U20 international could continue his Reims adventure: “He told me he wanted to stay, but if Real Madrid or Barcelona arrives… I feel Hugo calm. I talked with him. He will have no problem staying at the club and neither will I! ». One thing is sure, Paris going to have to seriously speed up if he wants to lure one of last season’s revelations into his net in League 1.
