Hugo Ekitike is a 19-year old striker currently playing for Reims in Ligue 1 and he is attracting a lot of interest, with Chelsea now joining Newcastle in a growing list of teams looking at the player.
Across Europe’s top 5 leagues, the youngster is the top goal-scorer in the U20s bracket, and this has lead him to become a very much talked about talent in France and Europe.
It’s unclear just how serious Chelsea’s interest in the youngster is, but we will have to see if anything else transpires over the coming months.
Chelsea do have Armando Broja in their ranks already though, so they’d be wise to make sure there was also a spot in the squad for him this summer, VERY WISE.
