Hugo Ekitike, a striker from Stade de Reims, has been signed by Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan with a purchase option.

Last season, the 20-year-old had a productive breakout season in Ligue 1, scoring 11 goals in 26 games across all competitions.

Ekitike joins Nuno Mendes and Vitinha from Porto as PSG’s third significant acquisitions of the summer. Hugo Ekitike, a striker for Stade de Reims, has been signed by Paris Saint-Germain on a loan. The club’s official website quoted Ekitike as saying: “It’s a blend of many feelings, many emotions.” Obviously, signing with Paris fills me with joy and pride. It makes me feel quite proud to be here. My heart decided on Paris. It is the club from my nation, France, where I am also from. And it’s a club where the best players compete, where a skilled and knowledgeable staff works, and where the desire to win every trophy in every competition resides. Everything I need to be better is right here. It makes sense for me to be here because all the necessary components are here. Additionally, I have always supported Paris Saint-Germain because I have family in the Paris area. All of this makes my desire to join this club completely natural. I made the right decision to come here. “I am a player who enjoys good touches a lot,” he continued. My objective is to make the fans who come to watch the games happy. That is how I perceive the situation. The 20-year-old will remain in France despite being extensively linked with a move to Newcastle. I enjoy football’s aesthetics, and I believe that Paris is the perfect city for me to play that way. Additionally, the desire to make the team succeed as well as the statistical component, which is so crucial in football, are both there. Throughout the month of January, Newcastle tried to recruit the Ekitike but was unable, which led them to sign Chris Wood, a striker for Burnley. Ekitite can be purchased by the French champions for £25.5 million, which is less than Newcastle offered. Jean-Pierre Caillot, president of Reims, said that the club could not obstruct the France U-20 international. Eddie Howe will keep looking for a new striker as he works to improve his assault. We didn’t quite reach the amount Newcastle had given, but Hugo Ekitike has always been respectful of the club, he stated in a statement to l’Union. We are pleased to help him realize his dream. In order to compete with Wood and Callum Wilson in the front line, Newcastle will need to find another attacking player.

Although Dwight Gale is still a Magpie, several Championship teams are reportedly interested in signing him this summer.
