Shortly after agreeing a contract extension with their misfiring striker, Premier League side Watford are reportedly ready to listen to offers for Odion Ighalo.
The Nigerian international was close to leaving Hornets in January, but he snubbed a big-money offer from Shanghai SIPG in order to stay in Europe.
Having found the back of the net only three times this season, Ighalo has lost the backing of Watford bosses who are now open to cash in on star striker if they manage to find a January replacement for the 27-year-old.
According to reports from Sport Italia, Serie A outfit Napoli are lining up a January move for Igahalo who is seen as a replacement for injury-troubled summer recruit Milik, who is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to injury.
Odion Ighalo’s future has been put in serious doubt after reports that Watford striker could be jailed for two years after having been involved in a bribery scandal while he was playing for Granada in Spain.
Local attorney’s office of Granada is requesting a prison term and a fine for Ighalo, whose future lingers in balance after the scandalous revelations.
