West Brom bid £17million for Ighalo
Watford striker, Odion Ighalo, has been linked with a £17million move to fellow Premier League strugglers, West Bromwich Albion.
According to Sky Sports, Tony Pulis is hoping to bolster his attack with the Super Eagles frontman.
Ighalo has endured a miserable season so far with the Hornets and has only scored twice in all competition this season, after netting 17 times last season.
Two weeks ago, the 27-year-old was rumoured to be close to joining compatriot John Obi Mikel, in the Chinese Super League.
Ighalo has long been linked with a big-money transfer to China and Watford rejected a £38million pounds bid for him from Shangai SIPG last year.
“Yes, it’s a possibility he could move to China,” a source disclosed to AfricanFootball.com at the time.
“There should be an update in this regard this week.”
Ighalo only signed a new five-year contract with ‘The Hornets’ last summer.
Nwankwo Kanu, Brown Ideye and Osaze Odemwingie are other Nigerian strikers who have played for West Brom in the past.
