Ighalo might move to China this week

A week after Super Eagles Captain John Mikel Obi moved to China, reports have it that Watford and Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo will decide this week whether to follow the steps of Mikel Obi and accept the offers coming from China.

Ighalo has long been linked with a big-money transfer to China and it has been reported there is now a renewed interest in the striker from the Far East.

Reports have suggested he could well partner Carlos Tevez at Shangai Shensua after Watford rejected a 38 million pounds bid for the striker from Shangai SIPG last year.

Shangai Shensua have now made Tevez the highest paid player in the world on a weekly wage of 615,000 pounds.

In the summer, Ighalo signed a new five-year contract with ‘The Hornets’ to cool off interests from China

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri has tried to avoid being part of the speculations surrounding Ighalo’s future, insisting he remains with the Premier League club.

On Saturday, the 27-year-old Ighalo played the entire game as Watford went past Burton Albion 2-0 to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

He has only managed a goal in 17 appearances in the league, a far cry from the 15 goals he netted in his debut season in the English top flight.
