Nigeria targeting Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo

Nigeria are targeting Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo.

Nigeria have been running the rule over 21 year-old hotshot Ugbo who has caught the eye after making a prolific start to his loan spell at Roda JC this season, says the Daily Mail.

Ugbo scored his fifth goal in just eight appearances, six of which have been starts, for the Dutch side at Telstar on Friday night and Nigeria had officials at the game to watch him having stepped up their interest.

Striker Ugbo was born in Lewisham, south London and is eligible for Nigeria through his parents.

He has played for England at under-17 and under-20 level, helping the latter squad win the 2017 Toulon Tournament.
