Chelsea’s Ugbo closes in on €5m permanent transfer to Genk

The Blues striker is in final talks over a move back to the Belgian top-flight after excelling at Cercle Brugge last season
Chelsea are ratifying the final details of a €5 million (£4m/$6m) offer from Genk for striker Ike Ugbo, with the move expected to be completed in the next week.

The 22-year-old has been involved for Thomas Tuchel’s side in pre-season but negotiations around his future have been going on behind the scenes.

The homegrown star had approaches from Fulham, Watford, Monaco and Anderlecht after an exceptional season on loan at Cercle Brugge. However, Genk’s proposal was the strongest overall and ensured that they won the race for Ugbo.
