Lazio set to snatch striker Hafiz Ibrahim from Chelsea

Lazio set to snatch striker Hafiz Ibrahim from Chelsea

Nigerian striker Hafiz Ibrahim, 18, has emerged as a transfer target for Lazio as Chelsea drags its feet on offering him a professional contract.

Hafiz Ibrahim turned heads at the Viareggio Cup earlier this year, bagging a staggering 10 goals in just six games for Nigerian academy side Ojodu City. This performance attracted interest from top European clubs like AC Milan and Inter Milan. 

Initially, a move to Norwegian giants Bodo/Glimt seemed likely, but Chelsea swooped in after forward Raheem Sterling convinced Ibrahim to give them a try.

Despite impressing ex-Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino during a two-week trial, a permanent deal hasn’t materialized. While sources claim Chelsea remains interested, their inability to agree on a transfer fee with Ojodu City has created an opening for Lazio.

This delay has opened the door for Lazio, who are looking to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. Reports suggest Lazio is prepared to entice Ibrahim with a lucrative offer and the promise of significant playing time. The race for the highly-rated Nigerian striker is heating up.

The Biancocelesti, looking to bolster their squad for the upcoming season, are reportedly preparing a tempting offer for Ibrahim, which includes promises of significant playing time. This could sway the young striker away from Chelsea’s indecision.
