Raheem Sterling urged Nigerian youngster Hafiz Ibrahim to accept a two-week trial at Chelsea.

Ibrahim will be looking to impress the Blues over the next two weeks in order to earn a contract and join the London club.

Ibrahim, who plays for Nigerian club Ojodu City, recently scored 10 goals in six games at the Viareggio Cup to finish as the tournament's top scorer.

He will be on trial at Chelsea for the next two weeks in a bid to realise his dream of becoming a fully professional footballer.

The Express is reporting that Sterling was involved in convincing Ibrahim to accept the trial, with the England ace speaking directly to him on a video call.

Ibrahim was recently targeted by Norwegian club Bodo/Glimt but the club reportedly failed to agree terms despite entering talks last month.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim is expected to go out on loan to French club Strasbourg if he ends up signing a professional contract at Chelsea.

Strasbourg were acquired by Chelsea owner Todd Boehly in June, with the American billionaire having expressed a desire to build a multi-club network in the interests of youth development.
