Contents

Pre-Chelsea career

Iké joined Chelsea as an Under-10 and spent much of his formative development as a midfielder before moving further forward as an Under-15.

Chelsea career

Iké made his Under-18 debut in March 2014 as an Under-15 and scored his first goal against Bolton Wanderers a few weeks later. He played regularly as a schoolboy in 2014-15 and grabbed four goals before Christmas, finishing with a very respectable tally of eleven and Under-21 appearances whilst still an Under-16. Stepping up as a scholar, he had the burden of replacing the prolific goals scored by Tammy Abraham and Dominic Solanke before him but handled the responsibility superbly, finishing with 24 goals in all competitions and finished second to former-team mate Eddie Nketiah, now of Arsenal, in the league golden boot race. Appearances in both the 2015-16 FA Youth Cup and 2015-16 UEFA Youth League ensured winners' medals in both competitions whilst he finished the season with a run in the Under-21 team.

International

Iké has represented England up to Under-18 level, earning a call-up for the 2015 Under-17 European Championships.

He is also eligible to represent Nigeria.
