According to reports, Super Eagles forward and former Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo is among the strikers Newcastle United want to sign at ahead of the January transfer window.
Ighalo, who has played in the Premier League with Watford and Manchester United, currently plays for Al Shabab in Saudi Arabia.
Ighalo has been informally asked by Al Shabab if he would be interested should Newcastle bid for him, and Sky Sports News has been hinted he would seriously consider a move Newcastle come calling.
So far this season, Ighalo has scored nine goals and he is the joint top scorer in the Saudi Professional League.
He moved to Saudi from the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua after his loan deal at Old Trafford ended earlier this year.
His contract at Al Shabab expires in the summer of 2023.
