Odion Ighalo is looking to return to the Premier League in January with a number of clubs, including his former team Watford, keen to strike a deal.
The 30-year-old left Vicarage Road in 2017 in a £20m move to Changchun Yatai, having disappointed the Hornets with his desire to move on to the riches of the Chinese Super League.
The Nigeria international is currently with Shanghai Shenhua who he joined in February this year – but we can reveal he is now keen to move back to the Premier League.
ORIENTAL TIMES understand Shenhua would sanction a loan with a view to a permanent deal, making his prospective signing extremely appealing to a number of sides in January.
Sources say Watford have been contacted over a potential deal to bring Ighalo back to Vicarage Road and it’s understood their hierarchy have shown an interest. Unfortunately for the Hornets, however, they are not alone in the pursuit.
Everton, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Southampton have all indicated an interest in taking Ighalo in the New Year and it will likely come down to the striker’s preference with all six clubs reportedly keen to bring him in.
Ighalo scored an impressive 39 times in 99 appearances for the Hornets between 2014 and 2017 before departing and his return would certainly go down well with supporters as the club look to pull themselves clear of the lower reaches of the Premier League.

How Odion Ighalo Was Kicked Off Training By Man Utd Women’s Team Because They Didn’t Recognise Him
Nigerian footballer Odion Ighalo was reportedly booted off the training ground by the University of Manchester women’s team after they could not recognise the 30-year-old new club signing.
Ighalo joined Man United in a shocking deal that pulled the storm across the world on the deadline day of January transfer market.
In what appeared to be his second stint in the EPL, the Nigerian striker sealed a dream move to Old Trafford from the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.
But unfortunately, he could join the rest of his new teammates who travelled to Spain to enjoy their winter break due to heightened border restriction following the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The striker was left in England where he was training alone ahead of his debut against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
More facts have now emerged on how Ighalo was booted off by Man United University’s women team because he was not recognised.
According to UK Sun, the women players could not recognise the 30-year-old striker as their club’s new signing and ordered him to leave their training arena.

It took the intervention of the support staff, who explained Ighalo’s identity before the AFCON 2019 Golden Boot winner was allowed to take his routine.
The tension was doused down by Ighalo’s familiarity stunt which ended with the women team taking selfie picture with the former Nigerian international.
“Nobody knew who this guy was and there was a bit of back and forth between them. The girls were pretty feisty about him being on their pitch,” an eyewitness said.
