West Ham United have emerged as potential suitors for Watford’s Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo.
The Sun reports that the Hammers are looking to build on their fine showing in the Premier League this season by improving their squad.
Top of the priority list is a prolific striker and the East London club has apparently identified Ighalo as the ideal target.
The Super Eagles player has enjoyed a fine season with Watford in the English top flight, scoring 14 goals in 31 appearances for the Wasps.
Ighalo has also been linked to Manchester United and Arsenal, though those are just rumours at this stage.
The 26-year-old striker is reportedly valued at £15-million, with only a big-money move set to tempt Watford to part with their prized asset.
West Ham already have five Africans in their squad: Cheikhou Kouyate, Victor Moses, Alex Song, Diafra Sakho and Emmanuel Emenike.
