Six Premier League clubs keen on signing former Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo in the January transfer window.

The 30-year-old is currently with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua who he joined in February this year but the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Golden Boot winner eyeing a returned to the Premier League early next year where he left in 2017 in a £20m move to Changchun Yatai.

According to a TeamTalk claims that Shenhua would reportedly allow Ighalo to leave on loan in January with an option to buy in the summer as the situation has alerted his former club Watford and five other top-flight clubs in England of Everton, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Ham.

Ighalo’s first stint in England was a huge success where he grabbed an impressive 39 goals in 99 appearances for Watford between 2014 and 2017 by helping the Hornets to gain promotion to the Premier League and then to maintain their Premiership status.

The former Granada striker has scored 10 goals in 17 league games for Shanghai Shenhua this season so he is still finding the net.
