Watford could be set to sell their star of last season Odion Ighalo after the striker's inconsistencies this term.

According to a report in the ​Mirror, the Hornets would be willing to sell the Nigerian for the right price. The same report claims that the new home of highest-paid player in the world Carlos Tevez, Shanghai Shenhua, are interested in the misfiring forward.

It would appear times have changed for Ighalo at Watford, who was their key man in the 2015/16 season. The 27-year-old plundered 17 goals in all competitions for the Hornets but since has fallen from grace and struggled to maintain any sort of form this time around.

His showing last season prompted some clubs to test Watford's resolve over the player, with Manchester United apparently trying to sign him for £35m only a year ago on transfer deadline day.

Watford also rebuffed the advances of Chinese outfit Shanghai SIPG in a more well-documented transfer story. It was reported that the player himself turned down the £37.5m move, but Ighalo could now find himself the subject of another potential swoop to take him to the Far East.

Any move to take him to the ever expanding CSL would make Ighalo the second Nigerian international to leave the Premier League for China after Tianjin TEDA signed Chelsea outcast John Obi Mikel.

With just six goals to his name throughout the whole of 2016, Walter Mazzarri could well be looking to cash in on the once clinical hitman. From the player's perspective, with wages of around £200k on offer, a move would certainly be difficult to ignore.​
