Wigan target sparks transfer talk

DW Stadium, WiganWigan target Odion Ighalo says he is ready to make the switch to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons with Spanish outfit Granada, where he has caught the eye of a number of European clubs with his goalscoring exploits.

The Nigerian hitman will head back to parent club Udinese at the end of the current campaign but doesn’t intend to stay in Italy long as he looks to complete a move to the Premier League.

Wigan are thought to be keeping tabs on Ighalo as boss Roberto Martinez looks to bolster his attacking options in the summer.

Swansea are also thought to be monitoring Ighalo’s progress, with the striker clearing the way for a transfer by claiming it would be a dream come true to join a Premier League club.

“I would be very happy to play in England and it is a dream for most players to play in the Premier League,” Ighalo told Sky Sports.

“It has been one of my dreams to come to England and I hope that can happen this summer.

“I have heard some clubs are interested in signing me and we will see what happens at the end of the season.

“I think my style of football would be suited for England and I think I could be a success there.”
