Marseille have made a move to hijack Genk's move for Chelsea striker Ike Ugbo, according to various reports.

The striker was set to move to Belgium, however there could be a late twist in the tale.

As per Fabrizio Romano, Marseille are 'trying to hijack' the deal. 

Genk already have an agreement in place with Chelsea to sign Ugbo, however Marseille have now entered the race.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Cercle Brugge, netting 16 goals in 32 appearances and it has previously been reported that the forward has agreed terms with Genk ahead of a move.
