PSG forward Hugo Ekitike is the latest player that has become a genuine candidate to challenge Olivier Giroud in the AC Milan attack next season, a report claims.
As has been reported by Calciomercato.com, Ekitike is a very serious hypothesis for Milan as they seek to ensure that they have more than just Giroud as a main striker next season.
The Frenchman needs more help in rotation and signing Ekitike would give Stefano Pioli an exciting young striker who could be ready to score goals straight away.
PSG would be ready to let him go for a fee of around €20 million which may well be possible for Milan to reach, as long as they make two or three sales in the near future.
One important factor is that Ekitike does not want to spend another year as the backup striker for someone else, he wants to be the main man.
