Serie A By: Ayodeji Tunde | 23/10/2016

Serie A side Napoli are said to be considering a January swoop for Watford and Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo, according to reports in Italy.

The Nigerian international joined the Hornets from Udinese in 2014 following loan spells with Granada and Cesena.

Since then, Ighalo has been a hit at the Vicarage Road, having scored 36 in 77 league matches and guiding them to consolidating their Premier League place last season.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Napoli are in good stead to land Ighalo because of Watford patron Giampaolo Pozzo’s excellent relationship with the Serie A side’s chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis.

And, although Ighalo has been brilliant since joining Watford, he has only appeared five times in nine appearances so far this season with Walter Mazzarri now in charge.
