Ighalo off to China?

Watford have accepted a £20m bid from Chinese club Chongchun Yataifor striker Odion Ighalo, according to Sky sources.

We understand the Nigerian striker has agreed personal terms in principle.

Final negotiations between the clubs are ongoing and Ighalo will have a medical once the deal is finalised.

Ighalo fallen on hard times

Watching Odion Ighalo toil in front of goal is a frustrating sight for Watford fans with the striker reduced to a shadow of his former self.

This is a striker who almost singlehandedly pulled the Hornets into the Premier League with 20 goals in their promotion campaign.

Once they had been promoted, he also found the back of the net against some of the EPL’s biggest sides, and bagged 14 goals in the first half of the 2015/2016 season, which brought his tally for the calendar year of 2015 to 30 strikes, the most of any player in England’s four professional tiers.

He struggled to continue his rich vein of form in 2016, scoring just three goals and has struggled this term under the management of Walter Mazzarri, even losing his undisputed spot in the first team in recent weeks.
