Odion Ighalo risks Super Eagles exit

Odion Ighalo may lose his spot in the Super Eagles if he moves to the Chinese Super Laegue, so declared the national team coach Gernot Rohr.

Rohr made the declaration shortly before heading to the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, where he will work as a pundit due to the failure of Nigeria to qualify for the Championship.

Ighalo has been heavily linked with a move to China in the ongoing January transfer window with Shanghai Shenhua reportedly set to be intrested in his services.

‘I don’t know if Ighalo is going there or not, I don’t know. Whether he chooses to go there is his decision but we have good options for his position as a striker.

‘We have the young (Victor) Osimhen who is now eligible to play (in the Bundesliga) since the first of January for Wolfsburg, and I will have a look at him,’ Rohr said.

‘And I will also have a look at a Nigerian-German we just discovered, I think we will have a look at him in March.’
