Eintracht Frankfurt are not prepared to break their salary structure in their pursuit of Crystal Palace and Wolves target Hugo Ekitike.


Ekitike has not played for Luis Enrique’s side since a cameo appearance on the first day of the season and is firmly out of the Paris Saint-Germain manager’s plans.


PSG are keen to find him a new club in January but his current salary level is turning out to be a massive issue for his suitors.




While clubs such as Crystal Palace and Wolves are interested in him, the forward would prefer a move to Germany and Wolfsburg have already bowed out of the race due to his wages.


Eintracht Frankfurt have been left enthused following talks with the striker but according to German daily Bild (via Fussball Transfers), even they are not prepared to break their salary structure to sign Ekitike.



The German club are only prepared to offer wages to the tune of €2.5m to €3m to the forward at this stage.


Ekitike is prepared to take a pay cut to find a new club but he is currently on a contract of €7m at PSG.



It is unclear whether the forward would be prepared to earn less than half of his current wages to join Eintracht Frankfurt.


Kevin Trapp and Mario Gotze are Eintracht Frankfurt’s highest earners at a package of €3.5m per year.


The German club are unwilling to break their well-planned wage structure to sign the PSG forward.
