Last winter, Reims had retained its promising center-forward, Hugo Ekitike, despite insistent requests from Newcastle. Bayern Munich, who are about to lose Lewandowski, and Dortmund, who have already lost Erling Haaland, were also mentioned. And now, according to Foot Mercato, Paris Saint-Germain has entered the dance. RMC Sport confirms and specifies that AC Milan and Inter Milan are also customers. Sky Sports recalls that Newcastle, bought by a Saudi consortium less than a year ago, has not given up.

Ekitike, 19, scored 11 goals in 24 Ligue 1 appearances in his first season as a professional. Called into the France U23 team, the Rémois could be the subject of an offer of 45 M € from PSG, assures Foot Mercato. RMC Sport rather evokes a transfer completed around 40 M€. It remains to be seen the place and the playing time that Ekitike would have, in the shadow of a Messi-Mbappé-Neymar trio which does not seem set to be dismantled.

His promising year 2021 now seems a distant memory. Winger Sofiane Diop, a 21-year-old French international hopeful, hardly played in the final sprint for AS Monaco, which won 9 of the last 10 matches of its season. Although he extended his contract last year until 2026, a departure “is being studied”, teaches us L’Équipe. Borussia Dortmund, qualified for the next Champions League, and English club Leicester would keep an eye on him.

At the end of the contract, Edinson Cavani (35) will leave Manchester United. It’s time for a revival for the Uruguayan striker, author of 2 goals in 20 matches including 8 starts this season, and long handicapped by injuries. This does not scare the Salernitana, which remained in Serie A during the last day. “I would love to recruit Edinson Cavani,” club president Danilo Lervolino said in the columns of Corriere dello Sport. “It would be an incredible gift for the city”, he added, specifying that he wanted to keep Franck Ribéry (39) “for one more season”. The Frenchman, captain of the club, comes out of a season with 23 matches. Cavani, he knows Italy well for having made the happiness of Palermo (2007-2010) and Naples (2010-2013).

6th in Ligue 1, Strasbourg finished at the foot of European qualifications despite a season well beyond expectations. The next exercise should be done with Julien Stephan on the bench. But not with the same players. The president of Racing, Marc Keller, mentioned the case of Ludovic Ajorque (28), author of 12 goals and 8 assists this season. “We want to keep him, but if he wants to leave and if a major offer is made, we will discuss it,” Keller presents in the DNA columns.
