It has become apparent that Chelsea are actively looking to shake up their striking options, with Watford forward, Odion Ighalo, among a list of potential names that could arrive at Stamford Bridge.
The 26-year-old has taken the Premier League by storm, with the Nigerian international carrying on from a wonderful 2015 in which he scored 30 goals, with a number of strong performances that have seen the big teams sit up and take notice of his attributes.
Ighalo has proven himself to be a deadly finisher in the 18-yard area, but there is much more to his game than merely being in the right place at the right time.
He utilises his considerable power and frame to bring others into play, and although Ighalo has the element of selfishness that all good strikers should have, his wonderful understanding with strike partner, Troy Deeney, has been instrumental in Watford’s rise to the top flight.
Now 14 goals have put Ighalo firmly in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, with Coral backing him amongst the frontrunners.
Watford’s recent inconsistencies have also coincided with Ighalo missing from the scoresheet, hopefully soon to change with a first half goal against Newcastle.
