Six Premier League giants are reportedly interested in signing Nigerian football star Odion Ighalo when the January 2020 transfer window opens.
Everton, Watford and Newcastle United are among the Premier League sides that are interested in the signing of Odion Ighalo according to Teamtalk.
There are reports that Odion Ighalo is planning to leave Chinese club Shanghai Greenland Shenhua for a return to the Premier League.
Shenhua's chiefs are reportedly ready to allow the former Watford striker to leave the club on loan when the transfer window opens.
Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Ham United are the other three clubs who are interested in signing Odion Ighalo.
Odion Ighalo has scored 10 goals for his Chinese club this season after 17 games.
Before he left Watford in the Premier League, Odion Ighalo played 55 games and scored 17 goals for the English club.
Everton are not getting the best out of Moise Kean so Ighalo would provide an experienced alternative while Newcastle’s strikers have one goal between them this season.
Meanwhile, Odion Ighalo retired from international football after the 2019 Nations Cup in Egypt where Nigeria won bronze medal.
Although there have been speculation that Odion Ighalo could come out of retirement, he has not made any statement on that.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Odion Ighalo, former Super Eagles forward, will battle the pair of Samuel Chukwueze and Super Falcons captain Asisat Oshoala for the Footballer of Year honour during this year’s Nigerian Sports Award.
Organizers of the Nigerian Sports Awards disclosed this on Thursday, October 24, during a ceremony to unveil the three top nominees for the 15 categories of the annual award.
