Odion Ighalo is a traditional number nine, having all types of finishes in his locker. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “PSG are emerging as a shock destination for Odion Ighalo. The Manchester United loan star is owned by Shanghai Shenhua. His loan at United expires in January. And Foot Mercato says Ighalo may be looked at by PSG, as they only have Mauro Icardi and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting as true no.9s. It is unclear if United would let Ighalo cut his loan short in this window, or if PSG are seeking him for January onward. But the source claims PSG’s interest is very real.”


If Paris Saint-Germain are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.
