Watford are planning to replace Odion Ighalo with another Nigerian attacker in the shape of Granada’s Isaac Success.
Ighalo’s scoring form has caught the eye of the Premier League heavyweights and a move away from the Wasps seems inevitable for the Super Eagles player.
Yet Watford have a plan in place to bring 20-year-old Success from La Liga to the Premier League, despite reported interest from Internazionale and Paris Saint-Germain.
The English side have the edge in the race to sign the talented youngster, as Gino Pozzo owns both the Wasps and Granada.
The Italian has moved players between the clubs before – Ighalo being a prime example – and is set to do so again.
Success has scored six goals for Granada in the Spanish top flight this season.
“Granada are not releasing him to any other club except Watford,” said the player’s agent, Dominic Egbukwu to allnigeriasoccer.com
“Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain have approached us. Plenty of teams want him.
“Watford and Granada are still negotiating. The wages are still being discussed. The only transfer fee Watford will have to pay is a 10 percent sell-on clause to BJ Foundation Academy [his first club in Nigeria].”
