Ike Ugbo: Chelsea academy product hoping to start in the first team after a successful loan spell

Chelsea football club continues to produce some of the most exciting talents in world football currently, with the likes of Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Andrea Christensen, Reece James etc all making a good name for themselves so far.

Another player from the ever growing Chelsea academy hoping to beak through this season is Ike Dominic Ugbo,

The twenty three years old English man is a fine striker who proved last season on loan at Belgium side Circle Brugge that he knows how to find the back of the net by netting 17 times for his side.

Standing at 1.87m, the youngster is a handful in the penalty box, with strength, skills and stamina he brings to the memory a certain Didier Drogba who is a legend with Chelsea.

He had a successful loan spell scoring 17 goals

The strikers have had some good loan experience, from playing for Barnsley in 2018, Mk Dons, Scunthrope United, Roda Jc and finally Circle Bruggs in Belgium.

The striker now hopes he gets his chance in the first team next season or join another premier league club where he can play first team football, Watford is already leading the chase with just one year left in his contract.

He looks ready for a first team role next season

Ike Ugbo looks ready for a first team football alongside Armando Broja, if it he doesn't get his chance this season then Chelsea might be loosing a fine striker something they might regret in the future.
