The 20-year-old striker is a product of a famed academy system at the Ligue 1 giants, but is yet to commit to professional terms.
PSG have been pushing to get him tied down, with one offer on the table.
Essende has, however, opted against putting pen to paper in the French capital and saw his youth deal expire on June 30.
Now free to dictate his own future, several options are being considered by the promising forward.
Goal understands that several offers have been put forward by Anderlecht, with talks having been held regarding a possible move to Belgium.
They are considered to be the side in pole position to secure a much sought-after signature, but no agreement has been reached as yet.
That is leaving the door open for others to make a move, with interest in Essende having built across Europe.
Premier League side Brighton are among the interested parties, with the Seagulls boasting the financial muscle required to squeeze out their rivals.
If he does not fancy life in the second tier, then top level competition could also be found in Italy.
PSG, though, are refusing to give up the fight just yet and are planning to hold further talks before a final decision is made.
