Watford striker Odion Ighalo has once again emerged as a target for Chinese Super League clubs, who were already linked with a move for the Nigerian international last summer.
Shanghai SIPG attempted to seal a £37.5 million deal with Watford in July 2016, but Watford opted against selling their top striker and ended up handing Ighalo a new contract.
New five-year deal did not stop Chinese from returning for the 29-year-old, who has now emerged as a target for Gus Poyet’s Shanghai Shenhua, according to Sky Sports.
Shanghai Shenhua have already bolstered their attack with world-class name of Carlos Tevez, who earns whopping £600,000 a week in the Chinese Super league club.
Shenhua are believed to be preparing an offer for Ighalo as well, as they look to additionally strengthen their forward line with a man who score 17 goals for Watford last season.
Ighalo is not having the best of seasons currently however, as the Watford frontman only scored 2 goals in 18 Premier League games.
