Chelsea are reportedly keen to sign promising Nigerian forward Umar Sadiq when the summer transfer window opens.

The Blues have already been linked with a number of attacking options ahead of the summer, and recent reports suggest that they have identified Sadiq as one of their targets.

Sadiq joined Torino on loan last summer as Roma aimed to deliver first-team football for the promising youngster. However, the striker managed to muster up only three appearances in Serie A this season, meaning that his parent club opted to terminate his loan with their fellow Italian side.

Roma then made the decision to loan Sadiq out to Eredivisie club NAC Breda, where he is currently in a good spell of form. The 21-year-old has found the net on three occasions in the Dutch top flight from only six appearances. Just two of these came as starts.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Sadiq back in 2016 but saw their efforts to sign him from Spezia fall through as a result of an agreement between the club and Roma.
