Decisions, decisions

Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo is still in the process of deciding his future, just as he was this time last month, and it would appear that he has even more choices now than in June. In addition to prior interest from the likes of Fulham, Rostov, Watford, Eintracht Frankfurt, and KRC Genk, he’s now also been “approached” by Feyenoord, PSV, and Besiktas.

That’s the word from Fabrizio Romano, who claims that the 22-year-old will make his decision soon, “in the next days”. That is unlikely to be Watford, who have apparently dropped out of the race some time ago, after signing strikers Emmanuel Dennis and Ashley Fletcher.

Ugbo scored 17 goals on loan for Cercle Brugge last season, and was one of the best performers in the Belgian top division in that regard. Chelsea’s asking price is a relatively cheap £5m, which would certainly represent a frugal investment for any interested party.
