All along, the party line from Watford and even the player himself has been that Odion Ighalo will be remaining at Vicarage Road this winter and isn’t interested in a switch to pastures new.
The Nigerian international has been a revelation for the Hornets with 14 strikes in his first ever Premier League campaign but he brings so much more than goals alone with his work ethic standing out above anything else.
Now while it isn’t classic Arsenal to aggressively pursue transfer targets, any injury of any significant period of time to either Theo Walcott or Olivier Giroud would be disastrous at this stage of the season and can the Gunners really rely upon that pair to stay fit until the end of the season?
Alexis Sanchez could play as a centre forward of course but he hasn’t been seen to greatest effect there and with Watford having brought in Nordin Amrabat from Malaga this January, we wonder whether a big money bid for Ighalo could tempt the Hornets in the final knockings of this month.
