Lazio Interested In Nigerian Striker

Serie club Lazio have been linked with a move for Nigerian youngster Hafiz Umar Ibrahim.

Ibrahim attracted interest from a number of top European clubs after registering 10 goals in six games at the Viareggio Cup earlier this year.

The 18-year-old trained with Chelsea in March, with the Blues reportedly impressed with his performance.

The West London outfit are however yet to reach an agreement with his club, Ojodu City, according to LondonWorld.

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

Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt are also reportedly interested in Ibrahim.

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 Stamford Bridge.
