Odion Ighalo Wants a Return To The Premier League.


Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo is reportedly considering a return to the English Premier League and he is ready to listen to offers from top clubs in England.

The Super Eagles striker currently plays in the Chinese Super League and has three more years left on his contract with Changchun Yatai. But source close to the 28-year-old former defunct Julius Berger striker has told Sky Sports that Odion Ighalo wants a return to the Premier League. The report also stated that two Premier League clubs are interested in him and would make their move to sign him before the close of the January 2018 transfer window.

But the two clubs who are said to be interested in Odion Ighalo must be ready to meet his release clause of £20m for them to lure him back to England.

Odion Ighalo started his career at Prime FC of Osogbo before moving into Julius Berger, he moved to Norway’s Lyn in 2007 and year later he was signed by Udinese spending most of his tenure loaned out notably at Granada before signing for Watford in 2014. He left Watford last year after scoring 16 goals in 55 appearances for a move to the Chinese Super League. Ighalo was also among the Super Eagles players that qualified Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup, and he is expected to be in Russia later this year.
