Agent confirms CSKA's interest in Chelsea-owned striker Ugbo but warns they face competition
Ike Ugbo's agent, Oliver Ward, has confirmed that Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow are interested in signing the Chelsea-owned striker in the summer transfer window.

Allnigeriasoccer.com broke the news that the Army Men were in the mix for the signature of the Super Eagles hopeful, who is having a banner season on loan at Cercle Brugge, for whom he has scored 17 goals in all competitions.

However, the striker's intermediary has warned that CSKA Moscow face competition from other unnamed clubs.

"CSKA is really showing interest in Ugbo, but that's all there is to say at the moment. Ike has many different proposals," Ward, co-founder and director First Access Sports, told Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

Ugbo has been linked with another Russian club Rostov and he's also attracting interest from the likes of Fulham, Watford, Racing Genk and Monaco.

The 22-year-old has a contract with parent club Chelsea until June 30, 2022.

A key member of England's squad to the 2015 U17 World Cup, he has pledged his international future at senior level to Nigeria.
