Ike Ugbo a star with Cercle Brugge - permanent option from Chelsea revealed

Cercle Brugge striker Ike Ugbo admits he retains hope of making it at parent club Chelsea.

The 22-year-old striker has hit form during his loan move to Cercle Brugge in Belgium, having hit seven goals in 12 appearances.

Cercle have an option to sign him for €5million, but the London-born centre-forward is determined to carve a niche for himself at Chelsea - just as Abraham and Mount did after loan spells away from the club.

He told Sport/Foot: “I'm a true Londoner and, in my eyes, Chelsea will always be the biggest club in the capital.

Chelsea would be the ultimate dream. As a kid, I admired Didier Drogba and John Terry.

“It's up to me to prove that I'm ready for an eventual return."
