At one point towards the end of the January window, Hugo Ekitike looked destined to sign for Newcastle United as the rumours about a move from Stade Reims intensified. That wasn’t to be the case though, with the French teenager apparently opting to snub the Magpies.
The proposed Newcastle move may have spiked even more interest in the attacker, who has been in fine form this season. The 19-year-old has nine goals and three assists in his 19 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season, making him the top-scoring teenager in Europe’s top five leagues.
With significant potential, a move to one of the European giants could be on the horizon in the summer with plenty of the big boys sniffing around the in-form striker.
