Chelsea, Fulham, Tottenham and Manchester United watching Gent striker Gift Orban

Chelsea, Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are all watching Gent striker Gift Orban, reports the Evening Standard.

The 20-year-old Nigerian has caught the attention of several clubs since moving to Belgium in January.

Orban has scored 19 goals in 19 games for Gent across the domestic competitions and Europa Conference League.

The former Stabaek star signed a four-and-half-year deal upon joining the Belgian Pro League club.

Suitors will need to part with a huge fee to have a chance of tempting Gent into selling Orban.

Chelsea want a new striker after struggling in front of goal this season.

Incoming manager Mauricio Pochettino never hesitates to hand youngsters a chance if they are good enough.

He could be keen on Orban, but the Blues must sell players before buying due to Financial Fair Play concerns.

Fulham also want to bolster their attacking ranks after challenging for Europe this season.

Manager Marco Silva already has Aleksandar Mitrovic and Carlos Vinicius as striking options, but he wants more pace in his squad.

The Craven Cottagers have already been linked with Union Berlin forward Sheraldo Becker. However, Orban would be a cheaper option.

Tottenham also could do with the services of the youngster, with Harry Kane’s future in doubt.

The England international striker has 12 months left on his deal and could be on his way out this summer.

Man United also want a striker and have been keeping tabs on the situation of Kane.

The Spurs star will cost the Red Devils plenty of money, and convincing Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to do business could be tricky.

If they miss out on Kane, going for Orban could make sense.
