NFF Chelsea Striker Ike Ugbo

Having missed out on Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, reports from England shows that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, want Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

According to Adrian Kajumba, 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.

Ugbo has scored five goals in eight appearances, six of which have been starts, for Dutch side Telstar 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 to represent 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.

The Super Eagles were dealt a blow last week when Ugbo’s Stamford Bridge teammate Tammy Abraham got a call-up to the England squad when they were hoping to persuade him to switch allegiance.
