Southampton to Open Talks With Odion Ighalo

Southampton are interested in signing Changchun Yatai hitman Odion Ighalo this month, but they will face competition from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhüttl will be desperate to bolster his attacking ranks at St Mary’s this season, especially with Manolo Gabbiadini facing an uncertain future on the south coast.

Southampton are by far from safe from relegation trouble, currently seating in 17th spot on the Premier League table

The Nigerian international has experience playing in Premier League, having scored 40 goals in 100 appearances for the Hornets, and he would be a really useful addition for the Saints.

Whether Southampton can beat Fenerbahce in the race for his signature, however, remains to be seen.
