Lazio set to hijack Chelsea move for Nigerian youngster


Serie A club, Lazio is interested in Chelsea target, Hafiz Umar Ibrahim.

Ibrahim impressed while on trial at Chelsea in March.

The Blues, according to London World are keen to sign the striker but have not been able to agree a fee with his club, Ojodu City

That has left the door open for Lazio, who have been monitoring the situation, to register their interest.

The 18-year-old Nigerian wonder kid attracted interest from a number of top European clubs after registering 10 goals in six games at the Viareggio Cup earlier this year.

It would be recalled that Ibrahim had a video phone call with Chelsea star Raheem Sterling, who convinced him to take up the trial at the West London club.
