Nigeria eyes another Chelsea star after losing Abraham & Tomori to England

Having appeared to miss out on convincing Tammy Abraham to switch his international allegiance to Nigeria, the Super Eagles have turned their attention to another young Chelsea forward, the Daily Mail reports.

According to the paper, Ike Ugbo is now on the radar of the Nigeria Football Federation after a good start to the 21-year-old’s loan spell at Dutch side Roda JC.

‘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,’ stated the report.

‘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.’
