Spanish giant preparing summer swoop for Watford hero

ighaloooooooThe Watford fans are competing in a pool tornament in The Transfer Tavern this evening and discussing reports a Spanish side could make a move for one of their star performers in the summer.

Talksport is reporting that Watford striker Odion Ighalo could be a target for La Liga side Atletico Madrid this summer.

The Nigerian international has been in fine form for the Premier League side so far this season and has seen a goal return of 15 from 30 games played for the Hornets.

Atletico are looking for a replacement to fill the boots of Jackson Martinez, who left Spain for China last month, and along with Alexandre Lacazette, Ighalo is one at the top of Diego Simeone’s list of targets for the summer.

The Watford fans in The Transfer Tavern are not concerned by the news coming from Spain and think that Ighalo would opt to remain in the Premier League over a move to La Liga.

Watford fans, can you keep Odion Ighalo? Let us know in the comments below!
