Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo will not be joining West Ham United in the summer transfer window.
It was claimed that the Hammers were showing interest in the Super Eagles hopeful who finished the 2020-2021 season as Chelsea’s top-scoring loanee with 16 league goals for Cercle Brugge.
This website understands that West Ham have made no contact whatsoever with Ugbo and his camp, and are not in talks with their London rivals Chelsea over a possible deal.
The former England youth-teamer has almost made his mind up on his next club, with Racing Genk and PSV Eindhoven the frontrunners for his signature.
A transfer to either Racing Genk or PSV would be a good move for Ugbo as he could be in contention to feature in the group stage of the Champions League if both clubs survive the qualifying rounds.
Since the 2017-2018 season, Ugbo has taken in loan spells at Barnsley, Milton Keynes Dons, Scunthorpe United, Roda JC and Cercle Brugge.
