Two Chinese clubs Battle over Ighalo’s Signature

by on January 31, 2017

Watford striker Odion Ighalo is reportedly close to making a move to the Chinese Super League.

It was gathered that Chinese club, Changchun Yatai have tabled a substantial offer for Watford striker Ighalo.

Another Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua are understood to have tabled a 15 million pounds bid for the 27-year-old striker.

The clubs are currently engaged in negotiations, while three other Premier League clubs are also chasing the Nigeria striker.

Last week, Hornets boss Walter Mazzarri confirmed that the Premier League club had received “some offers” for the 27-year-old, who is currently unsettled in England.

Shanghai Shenhua were believed to lead the race for the centre-forward, but according to reports, Chongchun Yatai are now ahead of Shanghai in the pecking order as they close on a deal.

West Bromwich Albion have been linked with a move for Ighalo, but it is understood that the Baggies have pulled out of the deal after failing to come to an agreement with their Premier League rivals.

The Nigerian international scored 15 Premier League goals for Watford last season, but has only hit the back of the net on one occasion this term.
