Super Eagles striker Ighalo in shock move to Barca
Super Eagles forward Odion Jude Ighalo could be set for a shock move to La Liga giants Barcelona according to reports in Spain.
Ighalo, emerged as an option for Barcelona, who want to sign a No. 9 in the winter window, to cover for the departures of Munir El Haddadi and Denis Suarez.
The La Liga champions want a low-cost option to complete the squad.
Ighalo has many offers to return to Europe, after leaving Watford to play for Changchun Yatai in China for two years.
Changchun Yatai have been relegated to the second division and Ighalo wants to come back to European football.
He has three offers from the Premier League, but Barca will be an attractive option.
Barca’s scouts know Ighalo well as he was at Granada. He scored 12 and 15 goals in his two seasons with Watford, who sold him to China for 25m.
The Nou Camp side also want a player they can rotate with Luis Suarez.
