Before Hugo Ekitike arrived, Paris Saint-Germain was hunting for a striker and they also were associated with Sassuolo Gianluca Scamacca. Moreover, the club was offered the opportunity of signing the 31-year-old Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. But it didn't look like the Ligue 1 side has an interest in him as they have their sights on Cristiano Ronaldo and might hire his services.
Paris Saint-Germain has declined the offer made by the La Liga club as Neymar will be seen playing with them this year and adding another forward in his 30s didn't seem like a good deal to the club. That is mainly because they would have to pay Griezmann's salary and the club is looking to cut the wage bill of players who do not have anything to offer to the squad.
