Tottenham Hotspur to battle host of clubs for Stade Reims striker Hugo Ekitike.
Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to compete with a number of teams for the services of Stade Reims striker Hugo Ekitike, according to ChronicleLive. He is one of Ligue 1’s emerging stars, and his good performances have garnered a lot of attention.
Although primarily a center-forward, the Frenchman can also play on the left flank when necessary, which is always a plus. This season, he has appeared in 19 games across all competitions, scoring eight goals and assisting on three others.
The Ligue 1 prodigy is recognised for his incredible work rate as an attacker, making him an ideal target for Antonio Conte. That doesn’t mean his attacking abilities are any less impressive, as he has an eye for goal, and his dribbling talents, along with his technical abilities, give him an all-around package.
Several teams are interested in signing Ekitike, including PSG, Arsenal, West Ham United, and Newcastle United. His current worth is £25 million, which may appear to be a bit high for the time being, but considering his trajectory of development, it may not be the most expensive price that could be stated.
This week, Newcastle communicated with Reims about the asking price.The Magpies have also been scouting the 19-year-old this season and have been advised to make a move soon before the ship would sail away.
