Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has been linked with a £17million pounds (about N10b) switch to West Bromwich Albion.
According to reports coming in from England, West Brom was in talks with the Watford striker, to move over to the Hawthrons.
The lanky striker had been heavily linked with a move to China already this transfer window, with similar speculation surrounding him last summer.
A move to the Baggies would be much closer to home and Sky Sports was reporting the deal could be worth as much as £17m.
Ighalo, 27, had been at Vicarage Road for two and a half years since joining from Udinese, scoring 33 times in 91 appearances. But had not been able to replicate last season’s form which saw him score 16 Premier League goals in his first year in the English topflight.
His move will reportedly give West Brom the permission to allow Saido Berahino leave the club with Stoke City reportedly keen on the English lad.
